Blue Christmas

by Harry

Poetry challenge: Christmas poem.

.

Submitted by Ex Libris Regina

 

Mall’s Mélange of Yule yodelling tunes,
Thick with fossilized marzipan.
Deflated Santa’s, dead balloons,
Fruitcake in the mousetrap, and
Howls, horrid howls of homeless Ghosts
Clanking their chains up the alley ways, and
To my front door, banked with snow.

Under festive ribbons and bows

Behind stockings hung with care

Lurks another side to Christmas

Filled with despair

Crackling Icon, Poetry Challenge.

by Harry

Submitted by Paturnerlee

 
 
Picked on ribbon tone rivets
To march on the criss cross servant holiday
Crushed crystals disposed of in bubbling gas water
An altar sugar sweet crackling money pot
Full of deep desire and wished on treats
Craving shaken tear spreading raven coloured tunnel
Cheap trick for magician on the hock for a star turn angel

Icicles shimmer, capturing colored lights.
Blue bulbs bobble row to row.

Poetry Challenge: Christmas

by Jem Croucher

Poetry challenge: Christmas poem.
 
 
IMGP5536

A sobering thought

Can I ask your indulgence for just a mo?
and to picture a scene with me?
It’s cold and it’s started snowing
And down there, close to the sea
There’s an empty bus shelter and an old cardboard box
And a man on a bench looking grim
Do you remember that day when you were shopping in town
Can you not remember him?

Poetry Challenge: Christmas

by jaybluepoems

Poetry Challenge: Christmas poem.

Peace on Earth, Good Will Toward Men

Crystal white in starlight’s gaze that peaks between the falling snow,
whispers sweet a Christmas song, upon a rhythm deep and slow…
It gathers in the spirit, resounds within the soul,
builds to bring a chorus strong of peace in phrases sweet and whole…
of peace on earth, good will toward men.

Christmas lights shine bright
while reindeer fly in the night.

The angels on the tree in flight.

i understand why people take their lives

Quiet moments watching the snow fall
Thinking of times past and days yet to be
We mold our future by the days gone by
Like most, I think of those close to me.

Forgotten

by Harry

Christmas poem: Challenge.

 Posted for Teasy.

Bells jingle for Kris kringle
Children, in a world devoid of pity
No Christmas tree, glitter or belles that jingle
Survival their priority, no exchanging of gifts
Santa why leave these children adrift
Though a legend and immortalised
What licence, allows thee to categorize

Wonderment

by Harry

Challenge poem: Challenge.

Posted for Teasy.

Children everywhere lie in beds
Frenzied hysterical unable to sleep
Listen en-toomed within a cacophony of noise
Devoid of silence, these innocent lie
Though if one child disregarded, passed by
Forgotten dwellers of a humbled abode
Santa never travels down their road

Christmas Alone

by Kerrie Ann Salsac

Christmas Poem : Challenge

Sonnet 3

It’s a cold winters night, I’m all alone.

Wandering down the high street, I wonder

about the friends and family I’ve known.

Where are they now? All huddled together?

All warm inside, whilst I’m left asunder,

traipsing through snow in such ruthless weather?

Why am I out here, when  I miss them so?

The crackling fire, the sparkling tree,

Today, in winter’s first day glory,

I’ve walked ‘neath frozen giants, gold,

held to sun in morning’s story

with midnight’s snow and breezes cold.
