December 23 Day 290: Ode to Tacoma’s 12 Days of Christmas

Christmas is coming. I’ve been working on a Tacoma version of the Twelve Days of Christmas. What do you think? I am in need of original photos for 11, 9, 4, and 3 but I hope I have captured the spirit of Tacoma.

Twelve geese a-gliding,

Eleven sailboats sailing,

Not my picture. From

Ten seals a-bobbing,

Nine locks safeguarding,

Eight cranes a-cranking,

Seven shore birds squawking,

Six pigeons perching,

Five Monkeyshines.

Not my picture. I have not been fortunate enough to find an orb in all the years I have been searching.

Four Chihulys,

Not my picture. From

Three Starbucks,

Two bridges span,

And a mountain that we call Rainer.
