Christmas Spirit


After welcoming the first fluffy snow
The spirit of Christmas has got me in its throes
I dig up the lights, put up the tree
wrapped gifts are out for all to see
Then I go through the vinyls,
to find the ones with the carols
Side tracked with Sinatra, Dean, Nat Cole
Threw on some Miles and Coletrane too
Before I knew it I’m rummaging through time
But then, all in all, it was a good night

Passion & Cheer

with red rose petals
springled from floor to bedding
makings of a tryst
promise of passion fills room
Sinatra croons ‘angels cheer’
