Happy or sappy? Create a Chain of Thought....

Okay, so I admit it...I get sappy during the holidays. Then again, so do many others. On that note, I decided to post a chain of thought poem, and of course it would be about the holiday season. Then I thought it would be fun if I invited all to create their own little gems, add to the, ah, well...you know...sappiness! Serious, funny, satirical, whatever you wish...have fun with it, and even if you are in a bah-humbugger mood, who knows, maybe it will bring you a little... you got it...holiday cheer :)

So here's my contribution:

Happy Holidays and Best Wishes…
Wishes, let’s hope for health and happiness in the New Year.
Year, it flies by, so grab hold of each memory and hope.
Hope, we need it, we should cherish it, and want all to have some.
Some, if everyone could give even a little cheer to all…
All, all around us we would find a season to be merry.
Merry, here’s wishing you a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!

Yeah...I know....really, really, sappy! But I'm loving it!

Can you explain what you mean by a chain of thought poem? Thanks!

Hi Vanessa! First of all, Happy Holidays to you and your family.... a chain of thought poem involves writing each line using the ending word of the previous line. So, using my poem as an example, when I ended my second line with year, I needed to start the next line with year, and then create a thought about that word, etc. I hope that makes sense. There is a great example of one at this site:

Hope you decide to create one. In any case, have a wonderful holiday.
