The Grounds Keeper

Keep off the grass,
Pick-up after your DOG,
Don’t pick the flowers–
except after dark

brave hides behind the door


a peek
of me–like
the kitten who
watches the dog
from behind a door.

It’s Christmas


 It’s Christmas

it’s the knee of an icon in a red suit with white hair
it’s star shaped cookies and peppermint candy
it’s piles of gifts wrapped in red and green
it’s the warmth of a wood burning stove
it’s a pine tree decorated with lights
it’s the pressure cooker whistling
it’s my brothers getting merry
it’s the posing and pictures
it’s grandkids laughing
It’s siblings chatting
it’s paper ripping
it’s Christmas
it’s tradition
it’s family
it’s joy

Merry Christmas
