Another Pagoda Christmas Haiku,and a Challenge !


Spinning silver tree.
you have loved two families.
What tales can you share?

I love this sort of introspective but simple poetry,quite often just give me a topic and I can go to town!The scheme of a Haiku is soooo simple 5 syllables on the top line, then 7, then back to 5. Within that framework ,I feel so safe to create(just wait till you get a load of my Cinnquain). Heres the challenge:leave me a comment in the form of a holiday Haiku,or even better,post one on your own site,let me know your joining in the fun and I shall link to everyone on Christmas,my gift to my blogpanions!

All work is done now
Ready to fly to Philly
I need to relax.

Not very Christmas-y, but that's where I'm at now! Just pack in the morning and the fun begins!

I liked Christmas best
when Santa did all the work.
Is it over yet?

Hmmm...perhaps that's not the holiday sentiment you were looking for.

Red Santa velvet
Holly, mistletoe, pine greens
Vibrant Christmas hues

Fresh pine needles scent
Cranberries and popcorn string
My Christmas moments

Ses World Tower lights
Christmas in San Diego
Symbolic icon (close to my heart)

Silver tree strands
Homes outlined in twinkling lights
Tradition survives

Mouth wide open awe
Paper and ribbon surprise
Little girl wonder

Barb said...

Oops, SEA world tower. I wish blogger had an edit button

Vintage baubles seem to glow.
Pretty Pink Christmas.

I am sorely behind my time and catching up on blogging today.

I never wrote a haiku before. Let's see how I do..

Christmas is over.
The decorations are down.
The spirit lives on.

It was a very soul searching holiday for me. I am excited and proud that I came through to the other side with lessons learned and great optimism. In certain ways, I am a different person today.

love you. that's never different
