crinkly paper, shiny bows
wrap diapers and wipes

Pretty paper and
pretty ribbon, so true, and
bright Christmas lights too.

Seasonal Want Ad

Patient polar bear
in search of intelligent
yet careless reindeer.

Rachel | 25 comments Evergreen - tall, proud
stood sentinel over gifts
Soon will be kindling

Fire just punishment
for abandoning its post
on Christmas morning

Shattered ornaments,
Hardwood floor gouged, pine-sticky
sharp, sad wet mess made.

(True story: our tree
fell over, fully trimmed, lit.
Dad chopped it to bits.)

hear! hope you're all safe.

winter blizzards and
already five feet of snow.
driving will be fun.

Robbie Bashore | 122 comments Five year old boy wants
"rock-n-roll 'lectric guitar"
for jammin' with dad

daddy does research
wants quality instrument
mom understands not

mom purchases toy
acoustic as it can be
"he'll love it" she says

Christmas morning comes
son thrilled to have his 'lectric
guitar. It is red!

Dad starts tuning it
"I don't care what it sounds like"
says boy. Mom's all smiles.

like yet? keep smiling... ;)

All is quiet on
New Year's Day. Truly, nothing
much changes at all.

Alison Arctic, this reminds me of U2...

"All is quiet on New Year's Day
A world in white gets underway"

I have some info on haikus I'm going to post when I get organized...

yup it's a u2 reference. glad you noticed.

Time for a new theme now that the holidays are over. I'll have to think of something.

I look forward to your haiku info - sounds mysterious and exciting!

Robbie Bashore | 122 comments Strum, strum. Out of tune.
With great enthusiasm,
guitar matches voice.

Late on Christmas day,
bridge for amplification
discovered in bag.

"This needs to go on!"
But...our boy doesn't like it.
It might chip the paint.

So, the sound is dull,
not resonating nor tuned.
Perfectly pitched Joy!

prisons do not close our hearts
giving raises my head

Gerda (Libtech) | 16 comments easter eggs peep
through red autumn leaves
and raindrops


message 16: by [deleted user] (new)

Christmas is nearly here.
We pile on the presents
again and again.
