Holiday Homecoming

A jaded city dweller returns to their snowy hometown for the holidays, encountering unexpected warmth

Train tracks hum, a rhythmic song,

Snowflakes dance, the night is long😀

Headlights pierce the frosty air,

Hometown lights, a beacon there.

Grandma's porch, a yellow glow,

Laughter spills, soft like falling snow.

Hugs embrace, warm and tight,

Whispers shared, under starlight.

Spice and pine, a scent divine,

Memories simmer, like mulled wine.

Carols sung, stories spun,

Love renewed, beneath the moon.

Presents gleam, beneath the tree,

But greatest gifts, are family.

Hearts entwined, a joyful band,

Homecoming magic, in winter's land.

Snowflakes drift, the morning bright,

Footprints mark a path of light.

Train departs, with a final wave,

Holiday magic, hearts will save.
