Christmas Light

Christmas Lights by frostkisses
The tree fell down
and the lights shorted out
The in-laws are bickering
and the mice are stirring in the basement 
but we made love in the mess
and laughed
and picked pine needles off each other's bodies
Comfort and joy.

I love it. Hope the pine needles were flat and not sticking into anything too painful! haha.

Ouch, those needles can be quite prickly.
You assimilated chaos into an integral condition of your holiday fun! Cool!!!
