Mash-Up Winner: Michelle Pond

If Santa was a Writer

Michelle Pond both 

If Santa was a writer,

what stories would he tell?

We know he’s good at keeping lists.

Can he write fiction just as well?


Maybe he’s a poet.

Perhaps, even a beat.

That’s true when he writes

on Christmas day, before

he’s gotten any sleep.


Would his setting be the North Pole

or towns all covered in snow?

Only if he believes in the axiom

“Write about what you know.”


If ever he had writer’s block,

he could hop into his sleigh.

Go soaring high above the earth.

Get a new perspective on the day.


No matter Santa’s style,

some things he’s sure to say.

Merry Christmas to all!

Get those potted plants

out of my way.


Congratulations, Michelle!

    If he really knows when I’ve been naughty, he’d never run out of material…

      You are a writer’s dream, Jeannine.
