Do You Hear What I Hear
Birthdate?  My family tells me
it was 1900 or so.
I don’t remember being born;
I know when I started to grow.

My first real friend was named Reggie
We first met when I was just six.
It was Christmas Eve, we read from
the Bible...Read More

Snowmen never stand
in the yards afterward when
it's near forty-two degrees
shovel put away
hasn't snowed since Christmas Day

Premium Member Give Me an Estate Sale Please
Garage sales are fun but estate sales are even better
I love looking through other people’s incredible stuff
It is a great way to find that kooky Christmas sweater
To find red petticoats and turquoise jewelry for a cuff.

The luck of the Irish.

The pot of gold at the end of the rainbow,

Strange Weather 

The camels are swimming, 
and who knew...
they knew how?
What a surprise...
to all that stood by, 
watching them cross the desert, 
like ducks on a pond. 

Careful and fearful,

My chair, 
at times over 
the past twelve weeks
my prison cell. 
Seven weeks more

with a Christmas display
of flashing, colorful lights,
nor as threatening as that

I rush.

We are not all equal. 
Some can dance on a wire...

Some can swim...
all the way to China. 
While others,
make food that feeds...
many every day, 
or take the hearts...
from some, 
to place in others.

In life, things happen, adding to my rigors,
and holidays usher in, thoughts that I dread.

If you want to give me a car

give it silver spinners
with psychedelic trims

Christmas lights on the floor boards
and Tinkerbell floor mats
A fire truck siren would be perfect
Thank you in advance.
