‘Twas the Night Before Christmas…..

This week I am combining two challenges with one poem. A terrible poem at that!!

The first challenge is Hélène Vaillant’s “What do you see?”, challenge

The second is for Chelsea Owens, Terrible Poetry Contest

Twas the night before Christmas

and feeling alone

not a creature was stirring

not even their bones

Went into dreaming

to get a fresh streaming

feigned a get away

accidentally landing in the UK

Stuck in a snow storm

wearing flip flops and t shirt torn

darned if I didn’t miss Bali

astral body took the wrong trolly

Phone booth in the distance

it would take ten pence

Mrs Santa answered

saying the one went onward

Saw Santa and his reindeer

racing in the sky so clear

bridging the distance

I climbed onto Blitzen

While the snow is glistening

I am freezing

yet cheerful to be part of this team

only to pull out the Jim Beam

Thankfully to wake

in a warm bed I did make

but be damned to want

to go back and not faint

To be bold

and not fold

under pressure

from cold weather

Mistakes can be made

next time be sure

to arm the astral with fur

  1. Not terrible at all, spectacular descriptive poem. I can see you up on Blitzen, having the ride of your life. Yea…
    “next time be sure
    to arm the astral with fur”
