JALAPENO SANTA

SANTA PEPPER.jpg

ART & POETRY BY PAUL & KATHY BOECHER©

This wooden Santa is quite short, but doesn’t lack in width,

His chiseled head is round enough to live up to the myth,

He resembles a hot pepper, he’s even shaped like one,

If I didn’t know much better, he might cook in the sun,

Still cherry cheeks and big blue eyes, bring joy to those he sees,

But he’s too round to stand alone, because he has no knees,

This Santa Claus is just a bust, but make us laugh he will,

Positioned there upon the wall or on a window sill,

It doesn’t matter where he lives, or that he makes no sound,

Once hidden in a plastic crate, at last he has been found.

About atimetoshare.me

As I reach the end of my years, I find I have a lot of good information stored up in this old decrepit mind of mine. If I don't write it all down, it may vanish and no one will have the advantage of my thoughts. This is why this blog exists. I love the Lord, Jesus with all my heart and soul. I know I'm undeserving of all He's done for me, but I also know that His love is beyond my comprehension. I've always wanted to write. I never kept diaries, but tucked my thoughts in my head for future reference. I use them now in creating stories, plays, poetry and my blog. I continue to learn every day. I believe the compilation of our time spent with God will have huge affect on the way we live. I know I'm a sinner and I need a Savior. I have One through Jesus, Christ. My book, "Stages - a memoir," is about the seven stages of life from the perspective of a woman. It addresses all the things girls and women go through in life as they travel it with Jesus, and it is available on Amazon.com.

    I don’t know if you have seen the ventriloquist Jeff Dunham, his language is a bit coarse at times, but one of his puppets is Jose, the jalapeno on a stick – of course he says steeek. Your husband’s is much prettier.
