The Grinch in Me

In my childhood- I loved Christmas with joy, but now I hate Christmas . . . I am a Grinch; oh yes, a past so full of glee, of toy, now I just find such pain- my heart does pinch. Other people relish the songs and cheer, but I have built a place to hide away; other people gather family near, not me- I have nothing cheerful to say. I have a box of things Christmas, so old, they bring me tears- sorrows of past great love; I want to crush Christmas and dream thoughts cold, oh red, oh gold, sparkling garnish- a dove. Yes, yes Christmas is not about bought gifts; but LOVE- oh God make me of love that drifts. _______________________ December 12, 2018 Contest: Movie Magic Sponsor: Gregory R Barden Movie and Character: How The Grinch Stole Christmas, Grinch "Christmas doesn't come from a store but perhaps means a little bit more." Quote from Dr. Seuss's Book, How The Grinch Stole Christmas.

    Hope I'm not interrupting your trend of thought, Constance, while you prepare your 'magic' potion:) I will be back; in the meantime thank you for the lovely song. Regards // paul

    Hi, Dear Heart. Let me know when the poem is written. Gregory came up with a very interesting topic for his contest. I'm also working on an entry. Hugs, Carolyn
