Festive night filled with music-
the sound of guitar, mandolin
(pa rum pa pa pum)
Red Santa hats,
jingle bells and neon signs
brighten the early winter darkness.
Voices raised in laughter
on the first day of Christmas
my true love
sang to me
and a possum in a persimmon tree.
*** it was a wonderful night at the Black Horse for the Christmas open mic night. I read a couple of poems and we all sang my take on the Twelve Days of the Ozarks and our friends, old and new, made merry.
note: the photos are from 2013 and we miss those who have moved on to warmer climes especially Ally and Pete – love you guys!
