December 23rd…. the day of waiting
The quiet hush as all is prepared… hopefully
excited whispering and peeking at the tree
A day of waiting, wondering what will be
The clock ticks.. but one slow second at a time
Cuddling by the fire, excitement building slowly
like a rocket screaming toward the moon…
knowing company will soon be here, only a day away
oh look a whole minute has passed…only one minute!
Checking to be sure all the dust bunnies are gone
tummies grumbling in anticipation, but quietly of course
not peeking under the tree… resisting that force… sort of
it must be broken that silly clock…. shaking it hard…
Menus dash through our heads, over and over
checking the pantry again and again…
gasping.. we are out of … well nothing.. woo hoo 😉
omg.. is the second hand going backwards?
The turkey is thawing.. well it better be… checking it again
some wine is cooling, I did my hair.
three roommates are lined up and inspected with care… really!
three minutes passed? that is all?
We are ready… we better be..
time ticks sooooo sloooowly
Moms are coming and a puppy too
the batteries, they must be dead… surely it has stopped
We are going to have so much fun!
we are ready, of that I am sure
where is the list.. I best check again 1, 2, 3
a glance at the clock.. time has frozen it must be
Waiting for the day seems so slow
all the planning and preparing
to be ready for fun and Ho Ho Ho
but the clock is stuck, it is not moving…. is it that Mayan thing?
The twenty third, the longest day of the year..
We have silly grins and are filled with Christmas Cheer
relaxing and waiting checking the clock, waiting and watching
for the clock to tick… come on clock….. TICK!
Each second seems like an hour
maybe we ran out of power?
snow is falling, it is just so perfect
weeee, ten minutes have passed.. can you tell I am excited?
Time for games, smiles and hugs
time is moving, though slow it seems
spending it with loved ones
here and in memories
Christmas is tradition, old and new
friends and family and all of you
blog and chat, school and work
all over the world and in our hearts too
Those that are here
those that have left
those to come
those to meet
Christmas is for all
yes, you you and you
I wish you the best
and send hugs with care
Merry Christmas to you all!
Some poems rhyme with beauty and grace
for they are written without any haste
but this is Christmas, and I am hyper
…so this one doesn’t.
