"Good cheer, merry!"
or so he says, the sneak...
hiding gifts, baubles, and candy...

Embrace the Holiday!
Tell the story of the eight days.
Share Love!

Today we made Nonets, another short form of poetry. Following are some examples of what we created.

christmas ornaments out of their place
other Christmases spent in cold
this year sparkle in the sun
in my new life so strange
I bring warm tidings
with these old friends

by Jolene Sabetha and Freda Frostbite

Winter falls like bricks clobbering all
who rest unknowing in the dark
Naive sleepers think themselves
protected by blankets
and gas heat. Morning
comes on the wind -

By Freda Frostbite

mediated by written word

rendered telepathic
in wishes and dreams
but not for me
I did not
learn French
