The best ‘Dear NeoSanta’ letter

December 30, 2010 1 comment

Dear NeoSanta,

Aren’t you cold up there in the North Pole? Take my coat, take my gloves, take my fresh-brewed hot chocolate and gourmet cookies… all I want is an apple-themed present. Or a million bajillion presents. Okay, Santa, so I haven’t been a perfect little girl this year. But let’s put our differences aside for a second and focus on reality. You are a pleasantly plump, genial young man. Even through all your centuries of present-delivering, you radiate youth and happiness. Oh, and may I compliment you on your fashion choices. It always amazes me how a man, even a stunning man like you, could stay warm and look good dressed head to toe in a color like, well, red. You know how to pull off a big nose-after-sneezing-fit, frozen-foot color… and by the way it really brings out your eyes. On the topic of eyes, I brought you a box of chocolate. It, er, improves.. eyesight or something. Yeah. So, can’t a splendiforic man like you see the good in a cherubic child like me?  For christmas I want some apple themed items, now just eat my chocolates, okay? Try them! And as I change this prose to ditty, don’t you think my letter is witty?

Sincerely Staring With Puppy-Dog Eyes (and adding a cherry on top),

He Sings of a Place

November 21, 2010 3 comments

Oh past horizon,

Seashore long

There sits a man

Who sings a song


He sings of a place

Far past seashore

Where the fish swim on

The birds still soar.


Where the trees still stand,

And the air is clean

Destruction and fire

Is yet to be seen


He sings of a place

Where trees do not fall

From axes and blades

But instead stand tall


Where the sea is not filled

With sludge and grime

Where the land is not yours

But nor is it mine


He sings of a place

Where humans do not

Kill not for food

And wars are not fought.

So ready up your fiddle
So when the time is right
We’ll tune then all together
An’ make your bow hairs tight

Let the music start now
We’ll keep the rhythm steady
We’ll bring good will to all
And lift the heart that’s heavy

And if we end our versus
We’ll just think of what will rhythm
We’ll play until tomorrow
From then until next time
