BLOGMAS DAY 9- Village Lights Poem

BLOGMAS DAY 9- Village Lights Poem

I absolutely love to write poetry, and because of that, I decided that I would share one of my very own poems on here for very first time, this one having a Christmassy vibe.

 

Village Lights

 

A beige jigsaw illuminated by amber light

flickers in a darkened room.

The golden core; a child’s invite.

 

Wiry evergreen, spattered with white

paint cast shadows as they bloom.

A beige jigsaw illuminated by amber light

 

The winter display, a cause of delight

amongst youthful eyes, which consume

the golden core; a child’s invite.

 

Melodic whistles of a train as passengers alight,

you turn the cog, granting the journey to resume.

A beige jigsaw illuminated by amber light

 

Carved reindeer, advent chocolate height,

disguise the plain wood – a Christmas costume.

The golden core; a child’s invite.

 

Such joy gained from a miniature world, bright

lights invite you inside their Christmas playroom.

A beige jigsaw illuminated by amber light.

The golden core; a child’s invite.

It was such a delight to read your poems! Seemed like I witnessed the Christmas eve in front of my eyes through the lines of your poem.

This is beautiful! Villanelle’s are so hard to pull off, but you made it look easy with this beautifully crafted poem. Brb just getting a mulled wine and Santa hat, you just put me in such a festive mood!
