      She Drips The woman with the purple hat, green dress, and black boots sits down on a park bench. Sometimes her thoughts leak out; a twist will spill, or even a fancy may seep through, ... more

      I really don't know, GJ. If didn't think The Pundit is Scotty Dogg, I would say it might be Jefferson Carter.

    It is cold, everywhere;

    the kind of cold some look forward to;
    an occasion to don warm fashions,
    and fur-lined gloves, gits from
    holy-days. A cold which warrants
    chopped wood for fireplaces,
    and warm eggnog.

    This is the type of bitter chill many
    others will dread. It is a coldness which
    tempts them with eternal peace,
    only to freeze their souls. It ices
    their thoughts, which makes them seem
    not just poor and cold, but dumb, as well.
    Mike Acker

    Christmas Cheer..... (memory's)

    Its Christmas time.... full of cheer... sharing
    but this Christmas seems so void of cheer
    as I walk the family house from one end to other
    alone...remembering Christmas past

    Home was were everyone gathered because my parents were alive
    it changed after that...it became a tradition to be at others house
    So every Christmas ever since I've woken up to a empty house
    once or twice perhaps... I was lucky to share with others
    that came home for that one particular year

    I remember when mum and dad was alive
    every year we would be preparing for Christmas day
    me and mum in the kitchen preparing food dad
    sharing his story's with his beers
    then by 12 mid day everyone would be home
    and the Christmas tree by then was full of presents

    I was the hostess with the mostess....smiles
    everyone kept me busy....I thrived on the cheer
    seeing people smile with joy as they opened presents
    it brought tears to my parents eyes to see so much love
    what wonderful times....sigh

    I still have half a day with my family
    but its no longer the same
    as I sit here alone on Christmas morn
    looking at the house that once use to be so alive

    I then look at all my friends whom I share my Joys and woe's
    and I'm grateful to be able to share my heart my soul my world
    to all whom I respect, and love with all that I am

    Merry Christmas one and all have a beautiful Christmas Day
