Another lovely post by Sir Felion- relaying a groovy event, Surfin’ Santa, which we attended this past Christmas Eve, up in Cocoa Beach. There were over 200 surfing Santies in attendance. It was a charity event to raise money for those needing to travel out of the state, here, for cancer treatment. T-shirts were all sold out by the end of the event, and the donations were brimming. It was exquisite.

Surfin' SantySlashing through the sand,
On a Beach so damp and viscous-
Whirling chilling winds buffeting them about,
A bevy of 200 rosy S. Clauses clutch their spindly glassine fiber boards
And plunge into the cold tempestuous tossing spume!

Surfing SantiesHordes-
Of young and old landlubbers roar and click their shiny phones-
And big giant bulbous-lensed cameras on spiderly legs
Clatter away to capture,
The ludicrous, quaintly humorous and stunning event.

A grand cause for all the scarlet pageantry,
Apparel was sold out to help fund
The arduous costly sojourns of those
Jousting the Big C with their far away healers.
–In memory of my wife Jodi, March 2007.
