Santa Claws

My favorite picture of Misha and I. Photo: CA Hawthorne
Oh, Santa Claws,
eating cookies and nip with glee
while slurping your milk
and leaving hairballs beneath the tree.

Oh, Santa Claws,
placing a loving purr in every gift,
then shredding the paper
and giving each ornament a special lift.

Oh, Santa Claws,
eating treats in pockets trimmed in red,
but avoiding wet paws
by taking time for cat naps instead.

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.
