10 Days to Christmas

❧✿❧




strum me a colour
rich in hue festive in depth -
taste of sorrel sauce

swirled in its rhythms
the songs of Christmas coming
enticing count down

tuned to favourites
radio stations vie more
talk time for call ins

special recipes -
melody of season days
delicious fancies

a super moon hung shines bright
blinking decorated trees
