Gifts

Another Christmas has passed. Gifts have been opened, food has been eaten, guests have gone home. It is quiet, and I am left to smile at my memories. As I thought about this Christmas, I wrote this haiku:

Christmas gathering

Laughter, memories, laughter

My favorite gifts.

I’d love to see your thoughts on Christmas in haiku form: three lines of 5, 7, 5 syllables. Can you haiku?

  1. Curling ribbon lies
    Amidst chew bones and squeak toys
    The dog sleeps in peace.

    Martini in hand,
    Lizabeth Scott on TV.
    No work tomorrow!

    Hustle and bustle,
    Shopping, wrapping, stressing, too.
    I’m glad it’s over!

  4. Beth Carter says:

    I prefer red, green.
    Traditions this time of year
    important to me.

    Sleeping’s hard for kids.
    Weatherman says Santa’s here.
    It must be Christmas.

    I still remember having a hard time getting to sleep on Christmas Eve. My mom used to put glitter on my nose so I could hear Santa’s sleigh bells. Funny, I never heard them! I wonder what she would have done if I’d awakened at the magic hour? ๐Ÿ™‚

    Santa came and left
    all the latest, must have toys –
    but no batteries

    footsteps on the roof,
    large man in red breaking in –
    police on the way

    ~~~~

    the lowly shepherds
    found the saviour of the world –
    we’ve lost him again

      I really enjoy your haiku, Mike. In this group, I especially like the first one. We’ve all been there. But, the third one is powerful and true. Wow. Thank you for sharing them!

  8. I wondered why so many people had done haiku already when you’d just posted this. Then I looked at the dates and realized they were oldies but goodies. ๐Ÿ™‚ This was today.

    Christmas snow arrives
    Trees and bushes wear ermine
    My heart fills with joy

    today, low gray clouds
    wet streets, we searched for a ring
    sunshine she could wear.
