’twas new year’s eve at the lake house
and two of our
fellow celebratory foot soldiers
and their loyal dog were down
though they made a miraculous comeback
returning to the fray for the midnight hour
and it was something to behold.
“forgive me if I sleep until I wake up. “
christmas is getting very close.
“i celebrate christmas with willful glee.”
(a candid moment from my recent fiesta)
my goat and i would like to thank
each and every one of you
who help me
celebrate every day
(the best day ever)
by being a part of my life.
“instead of hate, celebrate.”
if you have eaten the above, you are my contemporary.
here i go, around again
another trip around the sun
happy to say i’m still here.
is it one of the hottest days of summer?
is it time for our annual
christmas in july/august celebration?
with long-time friends
odds and ends re-gifts to each other
that we’re highly likely
to re-gift to someone else at a later date
no reason to keep the joy of giving all to ourselves.
‘christmas makes me happy no matter what time of year it comes around.”
