🎁 Gifts exchanged


Come sit with me awhile
Share that warm, radiant smile
Let’s exchange our best gifts
On the times we’ve spent

The stockings are overflowing
With luxuries of knowing
Stuffed full with the memories
Of which you’ve given plenty

The present’s perfectly wrapped
With a bow, as matter of fact
Holding our surprises together
To cherish these moments forever

2 for 1 ~ #Cinquain #Poem

Drizzle
Chocolaty
Toppings until it cloaks
Those croaking, four-legged toads up
For sale

Colleen Chesebro’s weekly prompt!

Seasonally adjusted ~ #poem

The biting, crisp reminders
Send shivers up my spine
From that moment in time –
A late December morning

When the semi-cool breeze
Had enough of record heat
Gusting thru the Inland basin
Pushing summer to an end

Where we all could fall in love
With winter once again
Plan to ring the New Year in
Wearing our scarfs & gloves

Making spring time resolutions
An intoxicating mix of absolutions

Holiday Propaganda

Have you ever stopped to ask why
It is that you buy into all the lies
Sold in countless advertisements
That infiltrate our daily way of life
Influencing more than what we buy
To purchase our holiday excitement

All for a great cause with a cost
Gift wrapped in our traditions lost
Manufactured retailed happiness
Artificially bought into the thought
That giving matters as we’re taught
So we greet the season’s nastiness

Where shall we begin, let’s pretend
Spending our time together ends
The purchase of lasting memories
Discounted for family and friends
Gathering with the love to defend
Blessings less financial jeopardy
