Santa is on his way.


Outside,
the wind,
rain
and hail
rattle window panes.

Lightning flashes;
distant thunder rumbles.

Inside,
oven scented pizza
with a garlic,
marinara sauce;
sausage,
bell pepper,
black olives
and melting cheese.

Chilled, foaming
dark beer
fills frosty mugs
with a hometown
German brew.

Flickering,
crackling
glow of warmth
from the fireplace
melting marshmallows
partnering with buttery
popcorn sounds.
Children laugh
with shinning eyes;
old lovers snuggle
under wool.

iPod Classic;
Playstation;
MP3 Player
wrapped under
a  decorated pine tree
leading away from
that deserted road
called
‘Family Values’.














 

My Splendid Concubine

You said so much in this one, Lloyd: well done.

Family values are, I suppose, in the eye and heart of the beholder.
Somewhere, though, there must be a common set of values that bind
us as one family, one community, one nation. It is to be hoped. I like this, as always, Lloyd. -gene.

Funny about "Family Values". It seems the definition keeps changing to suit the purpose of the beholder instead of what it really means, amazing write...

Be always safe,
Karen
