Word throw down #1

Take a few words from a family member and write a poem. Short and sweet, a small task but inspiring.

Holiday words from Robert: food, present, tree, and fire place.

The bone chilling breeze
across my neck lifted
my eyes to the fire place.
It carried the sharp scent
of clove stuffed oranges
and delicate pine needles
starved of water.
The boughs aimed down
cloaking the presents
seeming greenly alive
though killed
for these two weeks.
The food suddenly seemed
tasteless.

Love to read more.
I have written many a poem some very personal some not pubishable and other just for me.
