The Tumbleweed Tree

Mom and daddy
rustled up tumble weeds
with their bare hands
one year. They saved those devils!
Strung ’em together
like whiffy bales of hay.

50's christmas tree
And for the love of
baby Jesus — but mostly
us sniveling kids —
some three wily weeds
shone heavenly
in Ace Hardware white.

    • My Midwestern family tells stories of the ingenious selling tumble weeds to rich folk for Christmas trees. They can really be pretty! Hope you enjoyed your Christmas.
