*A Christmas Romance*

This white Christmas

I’ll be waiting for you

Under the mistletoe,

 

To tell you that

The reflection of the

Christmas lights

 

In your loving eyes

Is all I’ve ever wanted.

Merry Christmas, my love.

Trick-or-treat

*Trick-or-treat*

 

I wish I could

Give out treats

To everyone.

To all the children,

And to all children

At heart.

 

I wish I could

Lock up all the tricks

In the magic realm.

And leave no tricks

For the politicians

And anyone not being real.

 

I wish it could be

The kind of Halloween

That scares all evil away

Forever out of our lives.

But nobody is knocking on my door.

I should have decorated the house.

Happy Halloween to anyone out there young or old.. or somewhere in between, whoever is reading my blog. I hope that it is a fun-filled day for you.

Halloween is a new-ish addition to my list of holidays to celebrate. I don’t think I have fully come to terms with what it is and how it is celebrated. My first experience with Halloween was at my first year of university in Canada, when I was going up the stairs and ran into a girl whose face was bleeding quite heavily. Being an international student/ fresh off the boat/ whatever you wanna call it,  I panicked and was frantically going through my CPR knowledge in my head… and then the girl smiled at me! A couple of friendly witches appeared out of nowhere, and then I realized it was not a regular school day. It was Halloween.

Since then, I have made conscious effort to get to know Halloween a little better. The pumpkins. The costumes. And, of course, the candy. Lots and lots of it.

While I am still genuinely frightened of all the costumes that include excessive red paint in any bloody kind of way, I have found a number of other, friendlier costumes that I enjoy.

My favorite costumes:

– The clever costumes. The person who wrote BOOK on their face, and walked around as Facebook! And, umh, the cereal-killers.

– The cute costumes. All baby-pumpkins fall into this category!

– The couple costumes. Hello, Salt and Pepper Shakers!

Ok, time to go get some healthy veggies and smoothies…to balance out All. The. Sugar.

Happy Halloween!!!!

Earth Day

*Earth Day*

 

Earth day was yesterday.

So you planted some flowers

and moved on.

 

In a few weeks it’s Mother’s day.

So you ordered some flowers

and set a reminder to call.

 

But shouldn’t it be Earth day

every day? Shouldn’t it be

Mother’s day every day?

 

Sadly that won’t happen.

But, oh well, Mother Earth

got to celebrate twice.

New year’s resolutions

*New year’s resolutions*

 

Every year

I dread December.

Not because of the decorations,

Or the holiday cheer.

 

The sound of Christmas songs

Echoes on the things

I didn’t do this year. Even though

I had time all year long.

 

Rewriting new year’s resolutions.

What a waste

Of paper

And hope.

 

But look at all the things I did do

That were never a part of the plan.

Turns out the things that matter

Have their own calendar.
