I: 025 first day of winter

winter solstice
adolescent wiccans
flunk their spelling test


a candle
in every window --
strangers light our path

"adolescent wiccans?" flunking

winter solstice
the hardware out of
three way bulbs

Glad it tickled you, Ed. How about:

solstice party:
teen witches
can't even brew coffee

even tho 'adolescent wiccans' tickles my ironic bone . . . 'strangers light our path' i find works on a couple of levels. at first glance a deeply moving christmas-christian theme, on the other hand . . . people light their own windows for their own selfish reasons (decorative social look-at-me thinking) . . . lighting a stranger's path is an unintentional circumstance.
