"I am hearing poetry when awake,
dreaming poetry when asleep,
breathing poetry with each breath,
I am living in a poem."

It's a great line, the title. Is there an element of cynicism here?
Perhaps a little :)
Ha ha, I just read your comment. I hear you, Susie! You have no idea how clearly.
That's Christmas in a nutshell!
Christmas spirit with a little undercurrent... ?
I like the idea of Christmas scenes framed within windows. I guess it is hard not to be cynical about Christmas in these over-commercialized days, but your poem delivers something of an authentic Christmas to me.
Sounds like one of those party's where you really don't want to be there.
This is lovely, as is the photo your shared on I Heart Macro. Wishing you joy and peace today and always:-)
Cynical or not I like the phrase sugar dipped smiles. I read it as sweet. Even if the holiday is commercial, and it is, you can't help but feel joyful at the season. :)
I hear you, Susie!
It's an anticipation or expectations of a wonderful Christmas do, do I see one? Yes, you all happy with it! Merry Christmas Susie!Hank
Merry Christmas Susie... :)
a good way to start the holiday season:)
What else to say, but: Sweet. I prefer these sugar dipped smiles to dripping similes, for sure!
Methinks that there could be two translations of that word "frame". Christmas does leave a variety of tastes, if truth be told. A clever piece of writing accommodating both the traditionalist and the more soured among us.
I love the idea of sugar dipped smiles.Merry Christmas!Ruby
Happy Holidays, my friend!
Heavy sigh...I love that feeling. Happy Holidays Suzy am looking forward to another year of reading your awesome work!
I mean Susie....I am Christmas idiot...but you know that.
I'm glad someone else made a spelling mistake with your name. I'm sure I did that on FB yesterday or the day before.Sorry all over the place, of course.Now, you already know which bits of this poem I love best, but I must tell you about my Christmas reading: your book, Marian's, and Shay-Joy-and-Kelly. Taking them to a hotel room in Red Deer, Alberta, to read while Dick goes to hockey games with his daughters and grandchildren. I'll read them out loud to Lindy.Love, K
Merry Christmas, Susie :) ~
