Christmas Eve

Out here
in the cold

and the dark

I can see the glow
from the lighted windows
of neighbours’ houses

and up on the hill
the golden lights
from the edge
of the village

and my own kitchen
spilling warmth
and Christmas scents

Lillian is hosting at dVerse tonight, and she’s looking for quadrilles including the word “glow”. We’re sliding gently towards Christmas, and the dVerse winterlude. Check out those poems while you can.

  1. Outside looking in works well here, like a poetic introspection. When I was in the Navy I spent a lot of time looking at other people’s windows from outside.

  2. Hope you are enjoying your holiday and are cooking up new vistas for the New Year! I’ve started a new poetry forum earthweal.com and hope you’ll come by to participate. Open link challenge every weekend and a challenge every Monday themed on a changing earth. See you in the fray again soon!
