Three Word Wednesday Post:

Demolish; verb: Pull or knock down; comprehensively refute; overwhelmingly defeat (informal); eat up food, rapidly (humorous). 

Resolution; noun: A firm decision to do or not to do something; a formal expression of opinion or intention agreed on by a legislative body, committee, or other formal meeting, typically after taking a vote; the action of solving a problem, dispute, or contentious matter.

As I stare at the goodies of Christmas
I make a resolution to transform
This older body and not eat as much
But still it beckons me
So I hide it in the cupboards
And tell family go ahead demolish
So there's less of me
To have to transform 
And more of them?

Christmas is Calling

Christmas calls me ever near
I listen closely it is so dear
The smiles I see upon sweet faces
The tapping of the feet in places
As the music swells within their hearts
And compassion and generosity starts
To overcome those who listen to its call
And as family draws near to celebrate
Remembering Christmas’ past and contemplate
The memories they are making this year
That is what draws in my joy now here
To enjoy the season and the Christmas Day
With loved seldom seen now at play
Just enjoying their company
And how lucky I am to be
Celebrating Christmas.

Poem: I ℬεℓḯ℮√ε in Santa *<[:{)

Santa dear Santa
You wonderful man
Can there be anyone better
To help out those who need
And motivate those who can

Santa you bring such cheer
Into our lives, such joy
Is it any wonder we love you
You wonderful man

But behind every great man
Is a even greater woman
Motivating supporting and doing
Her part and more to help
And making him look good

So Clara, or whatever your name thank-you dear
We can't forget you never you fear
You do so much behind the scenes
That there is not so much as endless streams
Of goodwill and happiness from his visit.

I believe in Mrs. and Mr*<[:{)
