Challenge Accepted.

Exploring the blogs of the wonderful people here in wordpress.com, I stumbled on this little jewel:

Poetry challenge 10 words for Christmas, feel free to partake.

After reading it, I though, “Hey, why not?” Here’s my version. 🙂

The 10 words:

spruce

scarlet

silver

cinnamon

cheer

sparkling

ornaments

ribbons

window

lonely

 

The Star’s Princess

She saw the spruce was hung

The scarlet sky consumed by night

She drew her knees closer

Her breath colder than ice

 

Then came the silver carried by the mother

The scent of cinnamon chasing after her

Snowflakes dancing about

But her eyes shone more than the wares

 

A cheer bubbled up from the room

Sparkling wine passed from love to love

Her face was undaunted

A candle staying lit

 

The ornaments twinkled

The ribbons entwined

All a feast for her eyes

Yet chaff nonetheless

 

The sight from the window was to be a sight to behold

For the lonely figure under the tree

But her eyes were on the heavens

On a star that shone as bright as it did

 

Two thousand years ago.
