CHRISTKINDL MARKET

Frankfurt ‘Christkindl’ Market

There, hover twinkles in the frigid air

with many lights piercing the dark sky

as folks mingle around the medieval town square

following the scents of diverse foods like rostbratwurst,

toasted candied almonds, gingerbread loaf, marzipan cookies

and my favorite ‘stollen’ fruit cake

then perhaps purchase artisan trinket gifts

like candles, blown glass, even cuckoo clocks

then sip the hot Gluhwein!

just reminiscing my past life in Germany…
