Take my hand – follow the plan,
Let’s go for a walk down wide Spruce Street;
Friends to play with and neighbors to greet 
But now that we see all that we can

Snowflake Paradise
Snow everywhere,
Beautiful to view.

Branches of the tree,
Snow touched,

The evergreen trees,
Elegantly received snow.

God's paintbrush was here again,
Snow on the rooftops.

Santa could have been here,
Parked the reindeer.

Left presents for the parents and children,
A  reminder of Christmas.

A white Christmas day,
A horse and...Read More

My mate and I – beneath a Christmas sky
Looking ever upward; I have to sigh
to see what is the heaven’s brightest star.
So close...Read More

Red coats matching, Santa and a reindeer,
His favourite deer from the famous team,
Gazing out on a midnight cold and clear, 
Illuminated by shafts of moonbeam.

His favourite deer from the famous team,
Nimble Dancer, sure-footed in the snow,
Illuminated by shafts of moonbeam,

A Hard Beginning

The cough continues. 
My head... aches, 
but there are needles in my eyes, 
that will not stop poking my lids. 
Everything hurts today, 
that did not hurt yesterday. 
Today all things that hurt 
yesterday, have found new

I never knew that Stonehenge refers to hanging gallows

While solstice gives solace as the sun dial moves forth

Many years of mysteries immortalized for sacred worship

	Blue Stones transported from Pembrokeshire

	For a giant Cromlech by magic or very hard graft

Santa's Big Night

"Whoa!” Santa screams
And the reindeer freeze
Skidding to a stop
On the old roof top.

In his coat of red
He jumps from the sled
Then with a wink
And quick as a mink
Down the chimney he goes
With his sack full of toys.

Then in...Read More

They dance the Santa Shuffle

Likes to dance all through the night
A reindeer dancing’s a funny sight

Oh no, Christmas is on it’s way

He’s had to rent a motor scooter,

He heard a noise and he stopped breathing. 
Werewolf? Shadow monster?
His chest was heaving.
How far had he walked?
Shouldn’t he be at a town by now?

Hey! A tiny voice said. Up here!
It was a reindeer, in a tree.
Dasher? He asked hopefully.

Chimney is blocked

Reindeer in limbo

Santa is shocked

Angels tuned out

Jesus on crutches

Crying out loud

Dice already cast

Cross nails await
