Twas a month before Christmas, when all throughout the tropical beach, Not a creature was stirring not even a mouse.
When out near the palm trees there arose such a clatter, I sprang from my beach towel, camera in hand, to photograph the matter.
The bright sun reflecting off the ocean and sand, Gave luster of mid-day to objects on land. When, what to my wondering eyes should appear on Waikiki, But Santa Clause with a cellphone in hand, and stunned sun bathers nearby, trying to understand why.
May all your holiday gatherings be happy, warm and full of good cheer throughout next year!
Happy New Years!
This experience happened on my adventure to Oahu, Hawaii, on Waikiki Beach in November 2012. I adapted Clement Clare Moore’s (1799 – 1863) classic poem — Twas the night before Christmas
