The Smell of Christmas

The smell of Christmas


Looking through the kitchen 
Window starring at the sky
Singing soft melodies
As the hour passes by
Snuggle beside my oven with
 A cup of coffee in my hand
Watching the snowflakes fall
Like a blanket covering the land

The smell of pine aroma 
Lingers in every room 
 And baking apple pies
 All after noon
The smell of Christmas
Somehow fills the air
Lights twinkling on the tree
And toys everywhere

Friends and love ones
Sat down for a talk
With the holiday season
Embedded in their thought
Children around the fire 
Place eating cookies, and
Drinking milk
Dad relaxing in his chair
After a long tiresome trip

The holiday season is
Bringing good cheer
And the smell of Christmas
Lingers near
On a cold winter morning
Drinking hot tomato soup
And a jolly old man in 
His little red suit

Ham, potatoes, to 
The table they bring
A feast so good, its
Fit for a king
Prayers and love
That fills the air
And the smell of 
Christmas is everywhere.

    Thanks Debbie. I love the holidays, especially Christmas because this is the time of year to express love and the reason for the season which is Christ our Lord. Thanks for visiting and I pray you come again.
