Christmas lights (Unplugged version)

Sunset on Christmas Eve 2013, Yass Valley, New South Wales, Australia

Christmas lights, the unplugged version

We wanted to keep it simple this year.

Hadn’t felt much like Christmas, until the last minute.

On Christmas Eve we decorated the little Christmas tree then sat down to a gourmet, cold spread.

Just the two of us,

before the Christmas Day travelling.

Salmon dip, Brie, turkey, mortadella, sun-dried tomato and feta salad, Greek salad, rocket leaves. Elderflower and lime cider.

Each mouthful an explosion.

Then a crimson light washed over the room, through the window,

and coloured our faces as on a hot day.

We rushed out mid-bite to watch the glorious sunset.

The sun melted behind the ‘veggie patch’,

a dormant garden ringed by pine trees.

Our own Christmas light show, the natural way!

Reminded me: the simple things in life are often the best.
