Waiting For Santa In Our World

'TWAS THE MONTH before Christmas when all through the mall little children were gathering to see Santa Claus at a brightly decorated stall. The jolly old man who grants wishes kindly posed for a picture before returning to his big chair near where a lineup was building.

Although the Santa at my local shopping center had a delightful authentic flair, I wondered if the wavy locks under his cap were real and if curious children would tug at his hair.

A break in the weather was granted later when I went to Crescent Beach for a walk. The steady rain had washed the sky a clear blue.

Clouds of white flowed like the curls on Santa's head ...

and made watery reflections that tugged at a forgotten time in my childhood when I knew that wishes came true.
