Christmas – 99 word flash fiction

(Genre: Children’s Poetry)

On the most magical night of all the year,
I lay awake desperately trying to hear
the distant sound of jingling bell
which causes hopeful hearts to soar and swell.

Under the duvet I wriggled my toes
and thought of presents, paper and bows.

My eyes felt heavy and started to close
when through the window I saw a red nose!
I rubbed my eyes and sat up in bed,
wondrous images filling my head.

A soft thud I heard on the roof,
then the sound of a landing hoof.

I gasped and slid further under the sheet
in awe of who I might possibly meet
should I venture down the hallway
on this the most magical day.
