that be idle on

half dreamy air

at evenings rise and wonder

near hearts gather

kin and kisses

sweetness not grown cold

gather and share

in touched whispers

vast spread of turkey trimmings

indulge in wine and pudding

near to unbroken

given to each other

    Ah, wonderful. such contentment and warmth captured here, Chris.

  3. Semaphore / Samuel Peralta says:

    You did manage to evoke that atmosphere during a breaking of bread. Excellent work, and very subtle with the acrostic, which I respect lot.

  4. Sabio Lantz says:

    Indulging in pudding is dangerous! Nice snapshot

  5. I think you did a great job here–very nice acrostic.

  6. brian miller says:

    gather and share in touched whispers…smiles…it is great to be around family at the holidays…about to head over to my grammas house where all my aunts and uncles and all will be…

  7. You’ve created the feeling of Thanksgiving in a nice, economic write.

  8. claudia says:

    wonderful capture of that kind of fellowship you can have while sharing a good meal together with people you love…wish we would celebrate thanksgiving over here…
