Christmasku



The following poems have appeared in Christmas cards I’ve made over many years. You can also see photographs of each card at Haiku Christmas Cards. Also see “Angles We Have Heard On High” and Holiday Haiku. + +

night

falling

snow


winter stillness . . .

a strand of tinsel

in the tilted pine


Christmas morning

a drift of snow

through the sun porch


Christmas morning . . .

my neighbour’s brass door knocker

dusted with snow


toll booth lit for Christmas—

from my hand to hers

warm change


home for Christmas:

my childhood desk drawer

empty


northern lights—

snow sifts

through the bird feeder


deep red sunset

on Christmas Eve—

the phone’s sudden ring


distant church bells . . .

a sparrow’s breath

lost in the holly berries


crackling fire—

a hint of eggnog

in her kiss
