Joy of Christmas

Hoping Santa is on his way

Conspiring children sleep in shifts

Then charge to open Christmas gifts

Wishing for toys and games to play

Wondrous joy of the Holiday

Beautiful festive time of year

When optimism fills the air

Wish lists of goodies kids deserve

Shopping frenzy may work a nerve

Blessings of love and Christmas cheer

©️2020 CSNelson, Don’t Forget the Half

Inspired by: Ronovan Writes Décima Poetry Challenge (gift on B line); Your Daily Word Prompt (optimism); FWOC (nerve); RDP (festive); WOTD (charge)


You know, writing about myself has always been a challenge. It's not that I'm unsure of who I am but rather I like people to discover me on their own. I will tell you this much - I'M REAL! I guess that's all you need to know for a first approach; stick around and you'll understand the power behind that statement. What I do is another story! I embrace life hoping to live my purpose as a mother, daughter, sister, confidante and friend; I laugh, cry, and support; I admire, like and love; I listen, read and write. Most importantly, I have faith and thank God for all of me. My intent is to inspire others using my gifts and "Don't Forget the Half" reminds me to cast nothing aside. Want to know more? Discover along with me as I live my life out loud.
