Merry Christmas

Mild sun of winter 
Spreads a love touch everywhere
Of happy Christmas 

In the slum a child 
Smiles in a red hibiscus
Petals of Jesus 

Blankets offered to
Poor people standing in rows
Jesus in rainbow

In the hospital 
Life smiles in bruise blood and pus
Footfalls of Jesus

Upon the sweet grass 
Jesus smiles in drops of dew
Lovely Christmas hue 

In Christmas flavour 
To all poetry soupers
A merry Christmas

- Haiku X 23 - Christmas 2013 -


           Finally perfect
           high in the top the green tree
           The christmas star shines

           The lights are shining
           all the children should sleep now 
           Christmas  tomorrow

            No children crying
            a night with good sleep sweet dreams
            Gifts under the tree


                                The wish is old and yet so real.
                              A peaceful Christmas I wish for you !

nearly twelve o’clock
our tabby opens one eye
distant   “Oh  ho  ho!”

this one special night
the hen house door stands open
wily fox retreats

some little green men
from God knows where    see the light
       bow in silent prayer

meanest man on Earth
on his camel    hears the babe
vows eternal love

he trusted the Star
when the shepherd left his flock
wolves    by Star    transfixed

Ten days till Christmas
Ten days of worry    hustle
What shall I get her?

She won’t help me out
Won’t even give me a clue
What’s a man to do?

She never complains
About my Christmas presents
No    just this blank look

Makes me feel so small
Makes her feel she has revenge
A poke in the gut

“You never listen!”
These are some of her complaints
“You leave the seat up!

Don’t care how I dress
Might as well wear an old sack
Just like some old hag”

I can’t help but laugh
Because her description fits
OW!    OUCH!    That did it!

I will pay dearly
That laugh has ruined her Yule
Ten days of silence

Ten days on the couch
Eating out at McDonald’s
By myself    outcast

Thanks    Lord    ten wonderful days

This is not a description of my married life. I’m just having fun. This is more of a Major Hoople 
poem – “Egad, Martha!  Awpf  Sputt!”

My Christmas Wish

Wish I can now see
All those faces that left me
To hear them say hi

reindeer on the roof
crackling wood fire on the hearth
stirring memories

how magic the night
with all its mingled voices
for joy shed a tear

the tree – family
the lights – red, green, silver – bright
christmas child’s delight

the manger scene
with babe, simple animals
how warm, natural

head on a pillow
gazing up at the ceiling
a web of shadows

young thoughts go racing
mist – santa’s elves on the stairs
wishing time away

till it’s morning
those presents under the tree
eyelids grow heavy

before dropping off
this deep, jolly, ho, ho, ho!
Then to sleep

Christmas Without a Christmas Tree

Glittery Christmas
Filled cavity on my mind
Christmas ain't yet come


Sight flickering glare
Alternately trap my eyes
But shines ain't for me


Christmas, dear Christmas
Be the present of my tears
Tiny hug in missed


A tree full of lights
Shimmered warm, deep on my cries
Sad memories blinked


Pretty past inhaled
When time puts togetherness
Now just three of us


New family tree
The Santa's gift as mercy
God truly blessed me
