Silvery Season

Written for:  Poetic Bloomings2 - Prompt #317
Christmas Word Cloud

"Using this word cloud, write the gift of a poem for the rest of us.
 The RED words tell the Santa story; the GREEN touch on the 

North Pole's workshop
is in a tizzy.  Busy
elves help Santa sort
lists from children
who have proven
themselves to be nice–
twice as nice as
the rest of the year.
As always, well-meaning
reindeer attempt helping
with gift wrapping, but
their antlers get in the
way. They study the route
that Santa's sleigh will
take, instead.  In bed,
children wait impatiently
for Christmas morning,
and hope none of their
gifts are socks.


About purplepeninportland

I am a freelance poet, born and bred in Brooklyn, New York. I live with my husband, John, and two charming rescue dogs–Marion Miller and Murphy. We spent eight lovely years in Portland, OR, but are now back in New York. My goal is to create and share poetry with others who write, or simply enjoy reading poetry. I hope to touch a nerve in you, and feel your sparks as well.
