A Fall Celebration

The cloudy mist

exacerbates the stream

looking frothy as air

a perfect holiday dream

Smells of marzipan

on the table

a fire warms the room

feeling grateful

Out the window

a deer in the woods

glancing before running

feeling understood

Friends arrive

bringing some cider

laughing at stories

tall tales spread wider

Sitting down to eat

giving thanks through grace

plates filled to the rim

leaving no space

Feeling full

eyes begin to close

friend playing a guitar

lulling me into a doze

Awakening now

surrounded by ones whom I love

feeling popcorn

thrown from above

Time to leave

been a beautiful celebration

glorious memories to carry

until the next occasion
