harvesting memories ~feat nett~.

By Star

the weather was 
crisp, the leaves were 
falling, painting the surface 
of earth. 
i smelled apple cider 
in the wind. 
turkey's were gabbling 
in the distance. 

Upon a closer view, smoke
emerged from the chimney
stack filling the air of amber wood aroma. 
Moistened mini marshmallows dove into 
dark chocolate cocoa. 
The cinnamon sticks leaving countless 
sprinkle imprints 
around the rim of the squash coloured mug.

as the liquid kissed my lips
i was covered in a choco 
leaving me warm 
and ready for snow fall 
coming for the next season.
the sounds from the kitchen 
i could hear bustling about 
and glasses banging together. 

The stove tops warming pots of; 
chunked red russet mashed potatoes with skin, 
homemade mushroom country gravy, 
cinnamon-butter yams and seasoned cornbread stuffing.
The oven baked sweet honey glazed Hawaiian
rolls filling the kitchen with laughter and cheer.

The wine was made 
by foot 
by stomping the grapes 
from the vineyard out back. 
I'm sure Uncle Chris will 
make inappropriate jokes
once as he gets a taste. 

Grandma's finest gold
China flatware dazzled
the dining room table.
Crystal glasses were
topped off with the sweet
tasty merlot.
The table soon dressed
with a forty-six pound
golden crisp turkey
as we all gathered around with sides.

we bow our heads with a prayer 
and we keep our
ancestors in mind for what they did 
so many years ago.
with a thanks we give for the food and the family around us.
everything looks 
astonishingly delicious. 
we begin to eat. 

Laughter echoes the walls of the house 
and the warmth embraced through 
every lasting smile. We are truly thankful, 
thankful for our 
loved ones and this sweet tasting wine.
