We took the Christmas Tree down in January
If it had been left up to me -
the tree would still be there.
I love the lights and the sparkle.
Like every other year,
I forgot to put away a few ornaments.
This year it was a reindeer - gold and shiny.
The legs are strings of beads
and jiggly when he is moved.
I'm kinda glad he was left out.
I will immortalize him in my sketchbook
and then I will kill the white space . . .
