wow, Yvette, that is some poem.
Congratulations on all the awards! a nice Christmas present - and positive ones.
A friend of mine has tested positive for Covid. Was with her Sat. the 12th which means I had to get tested. am waiting for results, but it has now changed family Christmas plans drastically.
At any rate, hope yours is happy. stay well.

Yvette,
This is an interesting acrostic about how this year has tested our faith, but also about how Christmas, with all its chaos fo shopping and decorating, is here to remind us of the reason we have faith. We also have to remember that presents, although mentioned a lot, aren't what Christmas is all about.
Congrats on winning the contest.
Keep writing and stay healthy.
Merry Christmas.
Joan

The poem has a good start with: "Across the miles and through the woods,
Christmas chaos comes rolling in..." The author tells us what is rolling in:
"So, start with those old holiday tunes - Touch up the tempo and chorus,
Include a reference to presents..."

Finally the author ends the poem with "Commemorate all with pictures and pen so that you can prove you remember when...'

Good work.

I think it is a positive thing to be nutty once in a while...especially when it results in creating poetic entries like this one. So much imagery to delve into and see if it fits into our own personal lives. Your acrostic title is perfect for the lines that follow. Best wishes in the contest, Yvette!

The acrostic is perfectly written in its beautiful flow of truth and hope but this year it is difficult to keep everything we would have wanted to do due, at least in Italy because there will be almost total closure of the Christmas holidays until January 6th. Great entry as usual Yvette! Happy Christmas to all your family!

I'm absolutely certain I totally understood your meanings...both obvious and hidden. (Which, of course, means I likely misinterpreted every innuendo you stowed between the lines.)-- The pace of this poem is perfect as is the well balanced mix of cynicism and bewilderment that I think we're all feeling this year! Smashing success!-- Six stars!--Karenina

You put a lot of effort into this poem. Great presentation. Your flow and rhyme are really great. I like the part about pictures and writing to promote social distancing. Thanks for sharing.

This was fun to read. I enjoy a good non-sense poem. Sometimes it's just good to sit back and enjoy the meter and the words, let them drip where they may.
I got a chuckle out of "Channeling a Day named Doris." I don't know why it tickled my funny bone, but it did.
Thanks for sharing this inventive verse.
