Santa Hat

He wore a Santa hat
and shook it to the beat of
Who knows what–

I threw him a little smile
which he caught and threw back
through two sheets of glass.

He turned left
and I turned right
Leaving nary a trace of the smile
but for the corners of my lips
and a teeny tiny footprint
in a corner of my heart.

In the spirit of Christmas, that was my little gift. May your stockings be full, and, barring that, may your heart be full of joy and wonder of the year gone past and the one to come. Merry Christmas!
