The frustration mounts
As the paint clots
Running together
Reds, whites, and blacks

The fan blows
A little too hard
Instead of drying
It blows the work
Further down the table

After chasing it wildly
And placing it in place
My fingers work rapidly
Smearing on yet more
Multi colored paints

Despite the cooperation
Of tools unneeded
And papers unwanted
The masterpiece is finished

And, behold, it comes to life
As it once again dances
Across the table
Chuckling his HoHoHo

And dragging his bag behind him
The fingerpainted Santa
Flies merrily into the night
Chasing after the dreams
Of artists and poets alike


Even with a lot of imagination, does it make the story less true?

This was magical. For me it was this little trip into the majestic land of holiday and cheer. I don't know how to explain it but this poem put me through this portal of happiness. hehe....it was the best!



I was born myself, raised myself, and will continue to be myself. The world will just have to adjust.

This made me think of Christmas through a young child's eyes.  It's nicely done
