Sunday 160 - Aftermath


 A glow of spent happiness filled the air.
 Ribbons and wrap littered the floor
 as satisfied smiles
 long lingered
 across the faces
 of Santas of all ages and sizes.

I hope with all that is within me that it was memorable day of family among a string of them already passed and yet to come.

I'm sure an aftermath can be good, but the word always involves violence to me.

That picture reminded me of just how much trash we generated over the last week. It is ridiculous. We could start our own landfill.

Sandra said...

That's it! We are spending this year getting you a poetry book deal! I can't take your brilliance anymore. It needs to be immortalized in a pretty book with a gold binding and...maybe some Journey lyrics as a prologue!
