Christmas Recess

Full
moon,
twinkly
lites eclipsed
by Santa’s shadow
boozing down the Chimney tonite--

For Peggy’s prompt to the Real Toads: Holiday Memories

  1. I like the booze ooze combine here, tho in my life I like the twinklies to overpower it. Dear Santa!

  2. I agree with Susan...hopefully there will be more twinkle than booze...

  3. This is the other side of the picture, isn't it? Christmas lite, too much booze and artificial lights.

  5. No, it definitely came off dark to me. Really well done, Marian.

  6. Something definitely slimey and unpleasant about your Santa.

  7. Oh, yes, Marian, I can feel the dark of that one word eclipsing the moon and any amount of twinkling.

  8. The poem seems about happy things until--boom--along come booze oozing Santa to make it very dark indeed. Very effective I think. Thank you so much for posting.

  9. the only time you can Fib and get away with it around Christmas. Course, if Santa's lit up, he wouldn't notice anyways ~

  10. It could go either way. Dark or dark humor...more evidence of the magic of poetry.
