Bloggers 2007 Christmas Message

Christmas can be a "shocking" time of year.

I write a Christmas message for family and friends each year
(it’s a 22 year tradition) and this is the third year I have done
one for my blog buddy’s.

I thought it might be a good idea to post this early as I know
I have some poetic friends who might want to join in to this
idea (budding tradition?)

Bloggers 2007 Christmas Message

Another Year has ended
And with this, I’m sure you will agree
I’m broke…. my money’s spended
Thank the lord that blogging's free

Once more I look back with glee
At what’s given and taken, both ends
Just to think that we, Yeah, you and me
Though still strangers, we’re friends

Oh what stories we make-up
And with all of that hype
Cyberspace we fill up
With all the stuff that we type.

It’s been said many times
We are closer in “here” than with others
Here I’m searching for rhymes
I’ve got it… in “here” we're like brothers.

As I read a sad, or happy, post
I often sit with tear in eye
The thing that surprises me most?
Just what has made me cry.

Another time I’ll burst into laughter
As I admire the writing skills
And I’m hooked, a fan thereafter
With all my morning coffee spills.

So to all of us, yeah, I’ll include me too
Whose memories and imagination
No matter whether false or true
Write our posts and avoid litigation.

To all of my blog buddy’s
Wherever from far or near
As you sit in your study’s
Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year

( If you celebrate some other form of religion or belief
I hope you have a good one)

Very nice poem, Peter!

Merry Christmas to you!


Merle said...

Hi peter ~~ Good poem and hope to get the personal one as usual. I was a bit worried about your "talent" when I read those limericks. Not your best work in my humble opinion.
Hope all is well with you. I am going OK but get very tired these days and
the hot weather doesn't help. Take care. Love, Merle.

Great poem, Peter the Great.

And congrats on upholding your 22-year tradition! Guys like you make the holidays go 'round.

Dave said...

EXCELLENT post Peter!!!

You hit the nail right on the head with that poem... *S*

Merry Christmas and Happy New Year to you too my friend.

Jack K. said...

Great poem, Peter. After 22 years of working on such things, you should be quite proficient.

You did hit the nail on the head by mentioning the "closeness" we fell in the blogosphere.

Since there is no such thing as coincidence in my weird, wonderful, wacky world, I am glad our paths have crossed. I always look forward to your postings and the comments you leave on mine.

I wish you well. Have the merriest of Christmases and the happiest of new years. And, remember, there is always next year. LMAO.


PS: Thanks for the guest book idea.

Great post Peter.

What would we do without our blogging friends other than talk toourselves and you know how many arguments we get into when we do that.

Jamie Dawn said...
