Dragonboat

#napowrimo #chinesenewyear

They landed while everyone slept

Now floating majestically on

The banks of the canal

Awoken by the sound

Of a mighty drum

Cutting swiftly through water

In a race to the finish

Oars moving as one

As dragons race head to head

For the glory of the win

And water makes waves

As mighty dragons make way

On a path to the prize

Chocolate Christmas Poetry

Nutcracker (Cookie Jar)

Second day of the Christmas Countdown

everyone knows , that soon this drum major will be

rapping out a tune on his drum – for

gooey chocolate cookies might be guarded by him

expecting little ones to go on a hunt

not knowing where the treasure is hiding

that’s something – the dear major is keeping under his hat

Repercussions

#Fowc #Repercussions

At the end of the chaos

you stood there, smiling

never considering what would happen

pushing the big oil drum

down the rocky, snow-covered hill

people below ran for cover

not from the oil drum making its way

but the increased snow heading in front of its path
