I could smell the tree...and Christmas will be here before we know it!
Laurie,All those items which evoke and emotion within us all.Pine cones and needles, mean that the festive season is not so far away!!Still waiting for summer here in England!Eileen
What a lovely thought!
Makes me smell pine needles and feel warm and fuzzy!
Autumn's just arrived and Christmas is already in the air. The power and strong pull is matched by no other. Great!
OMgoodness, it's too soon, too soon, to be thinking of Christams. It's scary~!LOL
Beautiful, Laurie. I agree .....too early to think about Christmas, but beautiful nonetheless.
I think it's too early as well, it's just where my muse took me... perhaps b/c as I was shopping for my daughter's birthday I came across a specialty shop putting their Christmas stuff out.
Suddenly I'm transported from my 90F summer to Christmas time.
A wonderful respite in the midst of our heat wave and drought!
I chuckled at the comments, Laurie, but I like where your muse took you.
A nice thought though I like to stretch summer as long as I can.Happy warm thoughts today~
A tree by any other name would be decorated with ornaments and have gifts beneath.
Love the way you combined the tree and night prompts ... so nice.
Laurie - A beautiful tiny slice of seasonal emergence into the darkness of winter and the brightness of Christmas - No not yet!! Shah. X
Nice poem and filled with the fragrant scents of the pine.
mmm yeah i like the smells of the trees and forest...you bring that out well...wish we could carry the magic of christmas forward...
Hello my friend Laurie! Always nice to come back to read your beautiful article. Very understandable , simple and elegant. I wish a excellent weekend for you, with very smiles and peace! Visit me too. Greetings from Rio de Janeiro/Brasil.
Very nice internal rhymes and while I was surprised by the Christmas theme in August, it was a perfect touch -- Christmas Evening.
To my mind came the image of a lit Christmas tree, and I thought: It does look like a flame on a candle, doesn't it? Don't know if you meant that for certain, but there it was.
every day should remind us of Christmas, no? sweet write.
