INTRODUCTION 

Photo-taking and story-telling/creative writing has been what I have done most of my life. It has given me an opportunity to examine, mull over, study and/or appreciate special moments and sometimes the bazaar things that I have found visually interesting.  On my return car journey home from just outside of Bendigo back to Melbourne with my husband, I spotted a Santa in the middle of ‘no where’!  It had been stuffed with hay and placed on a golden coloured bale of stacked hay.  I had my husband stop the car and I took photos of Santa and wrote the following words and a very short poem.

 

POEM INSPIRATION

Santa’s Pooped!
I found Santa! He’s resting on a slumped hay bale in the middle of a grass paddock, just off a straight stretch of road leading away from Bendigo and back towards Melbourne, Victoria, Australia. Don’t think he’s getting much shade under these ghostly gums. So stop looking… Santa will return next year busting with Christmas cheer but for now he’s snoozing under the scorching hot Australian summer sun.

Title:  “Santa’s Pooped!” Poem

 



Santa, all dressed in red

and a little under fed,

looking very much like he is dead,

but no -- he's just resting his weary head.

‘Peace, at last,’ he said!
