January walk
Santa Claus and a flag
in a neighbor's window

being a foreigner, this probably has a different meaning to me than to americans. but what i see is a senryu with a strong social note.

Cool...I assume the flag is from July 4th celebrations.

Why take anything down, the holidays always rotate back around. I like the way he/she thinks.

Well, polona, pat's comment (below) may be illuminating. A lot of flags went on display at the time of the invasion of Iraq; some seem still around as a result of inertia. As Santa Claus in mid-January may suggest, it's over.
But, Vaughn, you may be right, and that, again, brings us back to pat's witty observation.

I love this one -- sounds like me - we were kind of late to take down the Christmas stuff. :)

I was unusually efficient about that this year, andrew, which may be why I'm being so smug.
