Christmas Haiku

Standard
Dear all,

Many thanks to those who take the time to visit, like and comment on this 
blog - it is so greatly appreciated! I have not had time to write much 
recently, but will leave you with a few haiku - snapshots of my 
Australian Christmas, where feasting, sharing, backyard cricket, and 
swimming, are in order. 

May you have a peaceful and relaxing holiday!

Santa snoozes
in the outfield,                     
pigs in blankets                

the bush throbs
a cicada's shrill 
tinnitus

grandfather's
magic -
reindeer dash
across the childhood sky

  1. Season’s Greetings, Michele. Agree with Valerie–delightful, including the photo! Especially love that last verse…reindeer magically dashing across a childhood sky…so lovely and evocative. Thank you, too, for all of your support. Merry Christmas to you and yours…and warmest wishes for an inspiring and luscious 2014. xo

  2. Michele, at this time of year when we are thankful for receiving gifts, I just want you to know that you are a gift to me–your writing inspires, and your support encourages. May you enjoy all the happiness of the holiday season. The first haiku’s my favorite–so playful and fun.

    • Aw, shucks, thanks Michael! I feel exactly the same way: your writing has HEART, and so do you – it’s real, and flawed, and big, and beautiful; I count myself very lucky to have a little place in that. :-)

  3. Go make a 100, and have fun doing it. Enjoy the Sun, Surf, and Sea, or water of any kind, from the freshest in the mountains, to the gated ponds of societies back yards, have a good time, and cheers to all!
