"Fact is, Nikki doesn't want to be in a relationship with someone who's immature and I don't want to be in a relationship with someone who's not Nikki"
-Saving Grace (Great movie...what a sweet line)

Poem time!

I took a walk a winter day
I passed houses and their grounds
The saddest thing 'long my way
wrapped these houses 'round

T'was unused porches that made me frown
Stale, alone and old
Desolate as the chilling sky
no warmth to offer from the cold

Like a holiday tree, decorated
but shepherding no gifts
all of these unhappy porches
came certainly well-equipped

All the right chairs, in all the right colors
pushed against opposite walls
Grills in a range of choices
and bright, painted railings

Occasionally, a table resides
the focal point, to be sure
telling an elusioned audience
tales of long past summers

Steaks were grilled, laughter shared
sunsets watched in awe
But now the wind has driven us back
and the cold keeps us at bay
I trundle on, unaware
of a warmer, more useful day.

Christmas is coming. Baby Jesus is going to be born!

Pray for me kids, I've been smashing my fingers in doors...
