Definition

One must make a distinction however: when dragged into prominence by half poets, the result is not poetry, nor till the autocrats among us can be “literalists of the imagination”—above insolence and triviality and can present for inspection, imaginary gardens with real toads in them, shall we have it.

Fashion me your words ~ Collaborating For Christmas


animated gif from Zimbio

COLLABORATING FOR CHRISTMAS
It was the day before Christmas, he was hungry, mighty hungry,
He stalked the pantry, the cupboards were empty,
He didn't want to sleep, he was too hungry for that
Guess what, no, not guest what? Guess what???

Shhhhhhhh!!!
The last festival he had eaten was, Halloween
No, not the last time he had eaten, the last festival!!!

For he was, The Eater Of Great Joy
But that, could never satisfy him.
Shudder, shudder!!!

He had heard about Santa.
He had heard about A Star.

Hi Toads, Season's Greetings.

Your challenge, on this eve of Christmas, is a collaboration. I have set the pace, be it chapter or verse, you continue in the style and number of words you wish ( yes!!! number of words you wish)

If you are adding from my piece, your post must start with my piece and continue into your piece.

And my generous spirit for the season, adds another bonus option.
You can continue from the piece i have given OR you may read someone else's which consist of [what i gave plus their add on] and, then you add to that.

Please remember, to credit persons, for any part thereof, their work, appearing in your post


Yes toads we are Collaborating for Christmas; Fashion me your words and while you're at it, have lots of fun.

AND

whether you observe or not, Be Blessed for Christmas, have a wonderful one.
