a very old wizard (hey j.k. rowling i beat you to it, we all know nicholas flamel is santa......don't you?)
a very old wizard
in the northernmost polar region a castle of warmth and enchantments is nestled. in it resides a wizard known to some, but not all. his name is a limerick, a memory, a spell and is summoned by a thousand tongues.
he lives not alone, for a women it's told, she bakes for the wizard while his magic unfolds. this witch of a woman has many spells of her own and summons his love with puddings and gingerbread. their children all clad quite the same, pointed ears and a language unknown.
these magical folk, labor in unparalleled time, so the ordinary can grasp something real. the young and the old, it is said of those who believe will rise from their beds, and a gift from him lay await one day of each year. a day where grief and horror is pushed back by cheer.
the old wizard is steadfast despite his old age, and a flash of the red of his cloak goes unnoticed as greed filled dreams cloud minds of the receivers when it comes to his good deeds.
but guilt will go unrequited, for he returns each year, it is the price he must pay for immortality. if kindness is something you wish to give in return, a simple gesture, nothing absurd, a beverage of something pleasing to most, a thank you baked in a cake and frosted with pleasantries. whether imagined or welcomed, hitched to reindeer or traveling by flue, this wizened wizard of sorts has something for you.

as the rain from the spout washed all the cluttering thoughts away....like faux blood swirling down the drain......it rained clarity ....and all my instructions were not previously received so i can one day reverberate to those willing to be deceived.....
if my pen does not embellish and my mind goes without a numbered page.....may the day turn to ash and the night forever reign ..

He reaches into the cold refrigerator and pulls out the pan fried dumplings….
Placing the chilled meat wrapped in a soggy blanket of wrinkled dough on the kitchen table he then returns to the refrigerator to beckon the soy sauce.
Chopsticks in mouth and wrists on the table, he pulls up his sleeves revealing his inked bracelet that reads herbivore. The lid pops and the first dumpling is then eloquently picked up between the two bamboo attackers and dipped into the sauce container then placed immediately into the mouth of the herbivore, or mislabeled herbivore. Then the second and so on until the last has been devoured….
She walks into a hotel room wearing a wedding ring and is accessorized by a man that isn't her husband. The door closes as they embrace and his hand lifts her blouse gently up her back revealing her monogamous tattoo…….
Youth walks into a tattoo parlor looking for something that will distinguish him from everyone else, a uniqueness perhaps or a label, disappointed he leaves as the door closes behind him and the sign that reads we only ink the letters 'hypocrite' so don't ask for anything else shouts a silent goodbye.
'Happy Birthday Jerk'
Dear sir or madam, either which I care not, for your 9.99 purchase affects me in the least.
I do and did apologize that said purchase, the harry potter shirt, did not fit the intended recipient, your fat sister. How cruel I am to say such a thing, but I am rather kind as you were rude and most likely lying about this claim, people often do, to 'pull one over' on the seller and receive free items. But if indeed the 'I speak parseltongue' shirt size 2X did not fit 'your sister' and you do not care that I own one as well and have had a swim or two in it, noting its rather largeness, I can only offer you advice and nothing else. The shirt is from hot topic, the franchised store that attempts to represent the cool or punk individual, yes just re-read that if you will please. Don't understand, I certainly didn't expect you to. You will not ship it back to me for a refund, because ironically shipping is too expensive, but only on your end, and you work at the post office. Excuse me I'm having a good laugh here. Alright I've managed to lift myself off the floor to continue, which reminds me of your fat sister......the one the shirt doesn't fit……your campaign sir or madam should be aimed at the fashion industry, else how dare you expect your fat sister to fit into a trendy t-shirt designed for smaller stature figures. Any who you have a great cause set before you, and I implore you to crush the fashion industry with the weight of your fat sister, who may indeed speak parseltongue but will not be able to boast about it while wearing a t-shirt. I will do my best to steer clear of any other buyers in the future who wish for me to enclose a note of 'happy birthday jerk' along with the item being sent to a different address per the buyer's request. As for your niece who is supposedly wearing the shirt because it fits wonderfully, I am pleased someone will enjoy it. And your blatant tone of 'now my sister has nothing for her birthday!' might I suggest you spend another $10 on her, she is your sister after all. Like I said in a previous reply we are all worm fodder, thank you for reminding me, and how truly little your problems are in this great big world.
In the words of Bilbo Baggins, 'I say good day to you sir!' or madam……
