2020 might have been a bad year, but it was the best year yet for my poetry: My Poetry and Satire, 2020. (Maybe my muse is societal nigh collapse.)
Anyway, thanks for coming along for the ride. 🙂

I hope you all have a very Merry Christmas!
Greetings from this poet during the longest night of the year.
May the gradually lengthening days ahead bring peace and good health to you and yours.
I hope your holiday season is proceeding safely and happily.
Full disclosure — I swiped this picture from a pal of mine who is far better at decorating than I am.
We all know that 2020 has been a difficult year, to say the least — and that this Thanksgiving, for many of us, will be unlike those in the past. Let’s each be thankful for what we do have — whether it is our health, our homes, our hopes, or one another.

I got a nice surprise when I woke up this morning — The Roanoke Times published my holiday poem, “A Roanoke Thanksgiving.” You can find it right here.
As you might remember if you follow this blog, I penned this poem about my adopted city at about this time last year. Thanks to the good folks over at The Roanoke Times for letting me share it today with my neighbors!
