This Christmas




this Christmas
draw silk curtains close
blow off the apple scented candles
untie blue velvet ribbons
unwrap all my gifts
whilst the music plays our
favorite holiday songs

bring down the golden star
from pine scented tree, under
red plump berries and evergreen holly
kiss my chocolate dusted lips,  
tinder the chimney hearth    
this Christmas





Posted for Flash Fiction Friday:   Tell a story in 55 words - for the G-man.  Just a fun write from me about the holiday.    Also posted for Poets United:   The Thursday Think Tank:   
Thanks for the visit ~

  10. That sounds much more pleasant than crowding around a table with relatives you really don't enjoy and stuffing yourself with food and making uncomfortable small talk! Wanna trade?
