    fireworks 1967

    crackers and squibs sport as children delight
    down by the river this 4th july night

    hippies laud the summer of love nearby
    blowing smoke into soap bubbles on high

    cannonades take charge launching to great heights
    then blossoms and spinners emerge like sprites

    the finale commands the heavens blaze!

    crosettes and willows
    vie with strobes, bees, and whistles
    ... fish dart a'glitter

    Enchant Me

    Your very being a desire for answer
    Lament not your unassailable mystery
    Enchant me with your dreams

    Well a two horse race eventually and two such different pieces.
    I hate having to choose but am going to go simply with the one that appeals to me most and that is.......
    YesNo.

    Congrats YesNo and thanks to both you and tailor Stately for taking the time to enter.

    December


    Once tenth and final month,
    Your name redundant after
    nameless days were gathered into
    years beginning.

    Embracing winters chilly solstice in the north,
    Or heated golden languor in more
    balmy southern climes.

    You end the year still
    with festive cheer,
    Despite the missing duo
    owed to render you sublime.

    Gift

    The gift I gave was soon tossed out
    Into a park-side garbage bin.
    I watched the beggars searching there.
    I saw one smile, hold it with care.
    My heart was whole again.

    Christmas Gifts 2017

    a bright fob watch and folding knife
    with Grandpa upraised in faux gold;
    certificates for drum and ink
    for printing gifts of my poems

    binoculars... a minuscule
    yet serviceable folding pair
    that I might survey my earthly
    kingdom in the cool of Yule's air

    hickory farms and gourmet fruits
    for to nibble upon throughout
    Twelvetide (should they last that long)
    bound for my pa rum pa ta tum

    but greatest of these the gift of
    family, and a gift supreme -
    that of our dear, dear Savior
    from our Heavenly Father

    Happy New Year everyone. I hope it brings you all peace, health and happiness.

    Two great entries for this one and both so very different at first glance but when reading again brought to me the true meaning of gifting at Christmas. Yes/No shows that we should be grateful for what we have as there is always someone less fortunate than ourselves and instead of bemoaning the fact that what we were given is not what we want should think about what we can give to others in order to make their lives better, whilst tailor STATELY revels in his gifts, appreciating their worth and reading through them the love of family and friends and the reason why it is called Christmas.

    So...after much deliberation I announce the winner to be... tailor STATELY. Congratulations.
