Why can we not bottle its essence?
The Christmas recipe,
That heady concoction
That special combination
Light of heart,
Quick of step
A song on the lips
A symphony in the heart
Externally warmed by the fireside
Internally warmed by mulled wine
Generosity of spirit
Jollity and laughter
Its crisp cold winter days
And frosty starry nights
Evergreens and mistletoe
The smells of a Christmas kitchen
Infused with cinnamon and ginger
It's over indulgence
It's thinking of others
Absent friends
Far away loved ones
It's sharing and caring
It's loving thy neighbour
Its compassion
Its children laughing
Its mothers sighing
It's the Christmas recipe
Why can we not bottle its essence?
So that at times when are souls are troubled
Or our hearts are heavy
At moments when the darkness has descended
We could unscrew the cap
And breathe deeply of its heady brew
And be once more refreshed

I am a fifty something family man with a passion for writing and I draw inspiration from those around me.
