Hunting For Stuff
Behind the couch
Under my bed
Between the covers
Under my pillow
Places to find stuff
Stuff I’ve forgotten I had
Forgive me stuff
A Christmas tree
Wrapped in old toys
A renewed love
What an imagination!
No money to buy new stuff
Is Santa some kind of creation?
He is not to be seen in sight
Is Santa really true?
Looking at the stars
A gentle speech
I’m sorry, forgive me speech
Santa doesn’t exist
It is our spirit that carries us through
By Maria Grujicic
I was pleasantly surprised when I found this video to go with my poem. The boy in the video reminds me of my younger brother, John who I was thinking about when I wrote the poem.
