dVerse — quadrille — Coloring Musical December

Dec 1

one-dimensional
snowflakes, nesting dolls,
ornaments, gingerbread houses,
sleighs with ponies,
children building snowpeople,
trees with red-winged bobbles,
sleds pointing downhill,
skates going “8”s

Hynde’s dirge
Ukrainian carol
Run-DMC’s Hollis
Carey’s want
Bing-Bowie’s boy
Eartha’s baby
Kinks-Elvis father blue

Warning:
Multi-sensory
gestures may
evoke spirit.

Pen us a poem of exactly 44 words (not counting the title), including some form of the word spirit. 

Note:  Playlist in second stanza:
2000 Miles
Ukrainian Bell Carol
Christmas in Hollis
All I Want for Christmas is You
Little Drummer Boy
Santa Baby

    You had me at the Bing-Bowie drummer boy, one of my holiday faves. I really enjoyed your clever and festive take on December. It is so well written, it feels longer than 44 words; good job.

    Apologies…so late to the reading. And I didn’t even get a post up for Tuesday or Thursday. So much happening here….BUT — glad I got to read this. It reminds me of that song from Sound of Music, These are a few of my favorite things! And oh yes….a slice of the holiday season…a cross cut if you will that reminds us in a quick flash of all the fun and wonderful images this season evokes. Love it!

    A great play-list, and a delightful warning, and great colouring, evokes a Turkish-Islamic geometric that I adore.
