Watching the Ripples Radiate.

Chapter 181
Spirit of the Season





















Whist shopping in the mall last week

To fill the Christmas tree,

A derelict old soul held out

His grubby hand to me.

"Spare a copper for a cuppa mate?"

He asked with shining eyes,

And there was something in his manner

Which quite took me by surprise.

Delving deep into my pocket

A Christmas smile upon my face,

I came up with five bucks

Which made his world...a better place.

He thanked me so effusively

His face a wrinkled grin,

Then we went our separate ways

And felt the joy of Christmas






Merry Christmas everybody

Love from Janet & Marshal
