‘Tis The Season
(Christmas 2013) 

Christmas tree,
Package bright
Star atop,
Silent night. 

Snow may fall
Bells will ring
Children sing. 

Making candy,
Shoot the breeze;
Building bonds,

*I sent this poem in Christmas cards I mailed in 2013.

Christmas in the post-War United States

Shopping Today?

Crazy folks!
Wet, cold.  Out in droves –
Oh! Christmas.


A Bit Extra

Bow, ribbons –
A Christmas present.
And more – love.


Calling Teetotalers, Too

Get ready.
Christmas hangover –
Credit cards.


Christmas Paradox

Tis often
Coldest of weather,
Warmest hearts.


Night and Day

Not a match:
Wild and hectic day;
Silent night.


Man’s Tradition

Birth of Christ?
Not Christmas.  Best guess?
In the spring.


Trip Dilemma

We have room
For Christmas presents,
Or the kids.


* The haiku I write are lines of 3-5-3 syllables instead of 5-7-5.
