Fa La La La La!

Gold finches light up
the chokecherry tree’s crown like
yellow Christmas bulbs.


Oh! Christmas Tree

Little pine tree from
last December, standing on
deck–still going strong!


Signs I Should Not Go Christmas Shopping

-no deodorant
-shopping bags in other car
-gears on mine are stuffed

-can’t find my ear-muffs
-sleet is sheeting down-it’s wet!
-I hate that Walmart

-wonky shopping carts
-tree still wants decorating
-there’s three more days yet.
