Quick & Light Holiday Poem

Since it’s Wednesday night (Hump Day – bah humbug), I’m cranky, hungry, and in need of a hug, I decided to write another silly holiday poem. I tend to write the opposite of what I’m feeling in the moment, an homage to the emotions I’m missing, perhaps. Either way, the poem is cute, unedited, and…

Silly Holiday Poem

In honor of us turning (violently and without enough warning!) into December, I wrote a silly poem to remind everyone of why we do this to ourselves every year: it’s not about the presents, the food, the decorating, or the hub-bub that we go through to get everything together.

Post Holiday Mini-Poem

[Disclaimer: This is very dorky/corny. You’ve been warned.]   A mini-poem for those going through the post-holiday funk:   Christmas has gone, The New Year has went, The time is now done, The hours long spent.   “Back to work,” the people cry, “There is much to do!” The bills, they come! I must comply,…
