The Christmas Song

Written for:  Poetic Bloomings2 - Prompt #364
The Muse in Music

"Christmas music fills the airwaves these days. And it’s easy to find inspiration in a good song title. Using one such title as your poem’s title, write that poem!"

There is nothing
like a roasted
chestnut.  During
holiday season
I am always pleased
to see a vendor,
smoke spiraling 
through the air 
from roasted chestnuts.
If you have a fireplace,
bring chestnuts home 
in their paper sack,
and watch the glow,
and know you are warm,
sated, and lucky.


About purplepeninportland

I am a freelance poet, born and bred in Brooklyn, New York. I live with my husband, John, and two charming rescue dogs–Marion Miller and Murphy. We spent eight lovely years in Portland, OR, but are now back in New York. My goal is to create and share poetry with others who write, or simply enjoy reading poetry. I hope to touch a nerve in you, and feel your sparks as well.
