Sometimes we just want to read about the holiday we're closest to.

The stories and poems

in this book are, so far:

Christmas and Hannukah.

Thanksgiving, New Years, St. Patrick's Day, and Easter.

I hope to add more as the year progresses.

Meanwhile, I hope you enjoy the collection.

It's brand new, although many of the pieces aren't.

Currently there are 52 items.

I have used one entry to begin each holiday represented.

To find the holiday you desire, you may have to go to the bottom and advance to another page.

(There are currently three pages.)


It depends on the quality of the review how much I send you in reply.

Most reviews receive 150 gps, but that depends on how helpful one is as to how high I go.




Just to draw you into the spirit,

here comes the parade! Always

a really good sign

of a holiday!

This is an illustration for a poem in "How to Write Poetry".

                   String of Haiku: Parade

We sat on the porch
As the parade traveled by
Fire engines sirened

                   Then came the horses
                   Saddles studded with silver
                   Prancing a street dance

Clowns flip-flopped about
With flowers squirting water
That carried laughter

                   Marching uniforms
                   Boomed and beat out the rhythm
                   In synchronized steps

Pooches on leashes
One leaving a pool behind
As they strutted on

                   A hula-girl float
                   With a paper maché tree
                   Danced of Hawaii

Elvis in person
Singing about his hound dog
Looking very young

                   A Karate team
                   With colored belts dangling down
                   Kicking at the air

Police black and whites
With whirling lights of orange
The closing salute

                   Smiling spectators
                   First meld and then separate
                   The party’s over

So Grandpa and I
Return to our waiting game
Parades of chessmen

My blog is a writing blog, where I add chapters.

Currently in its rough draft stage is my NaNo 2013 novel: The Downside of Solar Panels -- a young witch decides to install solar panels on the cottage where she lives. But how can she achieve her goal of financial independence when a warlock, werewolves, ghosts and a neighborhood vampire keep intruding?
