Haiku for seasons of hope

a season of hope driven by divine promise harmony awaits ask not for fortune ask not for eternal fame ask for hope and peace small faces aglow with happy expectation of presents to come hope brings peace and joy to minds focused on goodness unspoiled beginnings that which is given in the spirit of kindness selfless charity two planets shine bright in the early morning sky forming Christmas star belonging begins when raging egos recede into nothingness new winter solstice does silent celebration giving longest night when looking within a pale reflection is seen of humanity time to remember we are one with everything only separate anticipation thoughts of all good things to come holiday season quaint window dressing fills mind with evergreen boughs and fresh fallen snow laughter climbs to sky celebrating existence should be the main cause a time to rejoice whenever hope arises within humankind let the cosmos ring with joyful celebration hope has arisen blessed be this world blessed be all those therein bless this cosmic ride may true calm descend on the souls of humankind bringing lasting peace hung on the mantle in hope of good things to come bright Christmas stockings not all that profound those non-stop bedazzling sounds which fill the season may understanding guide humanity's future to a better place follow the clear path protect yourself from evil try not to transgress face toward the truth move forward with compassion justice be your guide treat others as you wish to be treated yourself practice forgiveness find consolation within support of others wisdom may ensue may grace come to those who seek to make life better give them peace and strength may peace and insight become lasting faithful friends guiding us onward may the vast bounty of this diverse universe fill your heart and mind get them while you can so sweet, small, round and orange they will soon be gone exalt truthfulness may clarity fill your mind and all of your days live in harmony peace before personal gain serves humanity goodness dwell in you a clear conscience be your guide throughout daily life all true piety comes from useful humane acts not worn rituals serving humankind not images within our minds betters existence praise all creation revel in the majesty esteem its wonders clever elves exist frozen in frosting white towns of Christmas tales horse drawn sleigh gliding stretch wandering ageless minds jingling winter sounds making one moment seem much greater than the rest yields observances singers caroling floating down from yuletide past brings warm memory sing sweet hymns of praise to this fertile universe maker of the feast beget soul cleansing take the first step toward grace forgiving others natural green spire occupies the front window evergreens arrive decorated homes illuminated glory light up the night sky decorate being with truth, compassion and grace improve humankind pray for the wicked pray for their many victims pray for humankind real hope shall not spring from embers of bad endings hope needs beginnings existence flows on appreciate beginnings celebrate endings something is amiss the world is out of order light fills the abyss happy holidays may the season bring blessings create joy and peace
