A rainbow loomed half mast

in the evening sky

candy cane curves

on a cascade of fluffy pink clouds

an entrance to another land

opening above my supermarket

I imagined elves peeking around the corners

of clouds

beckoning me into to this Oz- Wonka land

hovering within my reach

I’d skip along that yellow brick road with my red shoes on

dangle my feet in a stream of lemonade

listen to butterflies sing

while I galloped across daisy fields

on my horse of a different colour

and there may well be no place like home

but oh to sleep on those fluffy pink clouds

and rest into a sky filled with dreams

and then DING!!! “Deck the halls with boughs of holly,
Fa la la la la, la la la la.

the doors open

and I enter

a tinsel town nightmare

filled with the sighs of Christmas
