Luminance

Starshine
and twinkly lites,
licking sugar on air,
drum cacophony celebrates
Christmas.
King of the Hill, six episodes
later and you’re ready.
No mistletoe,
but kiss.

Sharing this older holiday poem today in the Imaginary Garden, where it’s Open Link Monday. This poem is from my first book, Responsive Pleading.

  11. The lights of Christmas take many shapes - visual feast and inner lights.

  12. Nothing says Christmas like six episodes of King of the Hill. Did you know that the theme song is written and performed by one of my favorite local bands roger Clyne and the Peacemakers? (AKA formerly the Refreshments). Come on down and I will take you to see them! Happy Holidays!
