A Mangered Way

Holiday Poems


Tonight, a star shatters

the darkness and shepherds

and kings know it it time

to travel.


Angels are everywhere

tonight, as messengers,

as heralds, and scribes.

A manger is used by

animals to eat hay.


Time to put an extra coin 

in the beggar's hand. Now is

the season for being grateful 

and for the bounty of living well,

embracing blessings, and 

for being warm and healthy.

I felt so good today because

I felt so good today because I finally had some cash in my wallet to give someone like this. It was cold outside and he was an older gentleman. I told myself I'm going to start keeping a single dollar on me all the time just for that purpose. I feel terrible when I really want to give and all I have is poastic. It's all about the eyes. What they see in yours and what you see in theirs.


...and he asked her, "do you write poetry? Because I feel as if I am the ink that flows from your quill."

"No", she replied, "but I have experienced it. "
