Merry Christmas, Mom - Part VI
by Randy Johnson

The Christmas of 2012 was the last Christmas that you celebrated on Earth.
You were a kind and loving mother for 41 and a half years after my birth.
When March the 6th arrived, you wouldn't have a tomorrow.
It took two years for me to get over the pain and sorrow.
I can't spend anymore Christmases with you, now I spend my Christmases alone.
You were a terrific woman and the best person who I've ever known.
March of 2013 was the worst month and year that I've ever experienced.
When you passed away, it hurt me terribly and I've missed you ever since.
But I feel much better now, time does heal a man's wounds.
Merry Christmas Mom, I'm sorry that you died too soon.

Mr. Bingle
by Jeffrey Pipes Guice

Jingle jangle jingle...
Who remembers Mr. Bingle...
From New Orleans, he was friends with Kris Kringle...

They enjoyed some fun and cheer...
When Kris came to visit with Bingle each year...
The two would celebrate with all the reindeer...

All the kids would come and play...
With Bingle and Kris in his red sleigh...

Peppermint Twist
by Evelyn Judy Buehler

Blackest night is slowly fading away,
teasing earth with new dawn radiance,
golden soon for the current holiday,
neon ferris wheel follows moon dance,
novel and charming in the new old way,
like a vivid spinning top of chance.

Santa likes coffee and pie
by Tammy Darby

I awoke late the eve of Christmas
To the sound of strange tinkling bells
Half Asleep looked out my window
There parked was a reindeer and sled

I get out of bed and to myself said
Something here is not right
Went into the living room shaking my head
There on my couch sat a white bearded man
Red suit

Holiday Ties
by Raymond A Foss

They came out of storage, off the rack
around my neck, starting today,
thirteen, maybe fourteen ties
(or at least the ones I've found so far)
with the story of Christmas, of the change
of seasons, of the fun and joy of the
holiday, of angels singing, presents wrapped,
garland, holly and ivy, Marvin, of the Grinch, of
Tannenbaum and reindeer, of snowflakes
and wisemen on a journey of faith,
