Holiday Haiku

Happy Holidays from Four and Twenty! Below are our favorites from the batch of Holiday Haiku you submitted. Not all are in the 5/7/5 format, but we wanted to share them anyway.

***

Christmas rides in on
the coattails of Thanksgiving–
Muzak fills the stores.

Cara Holman

***

hot chocolate steaming
shiny decorations glow
holidays arrive

Mark Stratton

***

buy one, get one free
nothing says Xmas so well
as deal of the year!

Mark Stratton

***

Immunize me, Lord
from these feverish salesmen
and their pandemic.

Clint Williams

***

childhood memories
a stocking for a dreidel
holiday exchange

Leslie Palm

***

fresh-baked gingerbread
for the savor it imparts
a child with wide eyes

Angie Werren

***

snowflakes on the ground
great-grandma’s christmas cookies
sift flour and sugar

Angie Werren

***

Christmas snow
deep on the mountain–
child is born.

Earl Moore

***

reminiscent pause
Linus says to Charlie Brown
Christmas true meaning

Stacey Wilson

***

Streets with twinkling homes
Harbor feuding families,
Lonely souls envy

Shawna Harch

***

And how could this be?
Amid poverty and crime,
my God, a baby!

Clint Williams

***

a heart beats softly
pulsing through fresh mounds of hay
thrums prophetic call

Leslie Palm

***

ice in a vodka tonic
mom laughs herself out of the kitchen
“women’s Christmas secret,” she says

Rebecca Olson

***

Santa driving
a large SUV
reindeer swear

Earl Moore

***

nestled in holly
red bird festive with his song
solstice morning air

Stacey Wilson

***

Past resolutions
made and forgotten– this year
will be different.
