Kitty-Proof Christmas Tree

Dearest Santa,
with your holiday wiles,
know nothing of challenges,
of holiday trials.

You travel the globe
each Christmas Eve,
yet you've not designed
the kitty-proof Christmas tree.

Stockings, wreaths,
less fun than branches.
The night's tolling tree bells
forewarning disaster.

Those twinkling lights
are the electric's sputter,
the star on top,
kitty's ultimate treasure.

This day you claim
because you're Claus,
belongs to Christmas kitties
and their paws of claws.

About Christina Anne Hawthorne

Alive and well in the Rocky Mountains. I'm a fantasy writer who also dabbles in poetry, short stories, and map making. My Ontyre tales are an alternative fantasy experience, the stories rich in mystery, adventure, and romance. Alternative fantasy? Not quite steampunk. Not quite gothic. In truth, the real magic is in those who discover what's within.
