ON THE THIRD DAY OF CHRISTMAS

filling
a grey morning sky-
bird whistles

parang music
spreading the good news
from house to house

-Keith A. Simmonds;TT

ON THE SECOND DAY OF CHRISTMAS

no year-end bonus
on this Boxing Day
feeling the crunch
a caring St. Stephen
blesses the unemployed

-Reason A. Poteet, US


wrapped in swaddling-
the baby
Jesus

the infant
bringing the light
to a world of darkness

ON THE FIRST DAY OF CHRISTMAS

The Night Before
A Renhai by Vaughn Seward (vs) & Janice Thomson (jt)


Winter bedtime —
the last child tucked in
for the night. /vs

Rising smoke from chimneys — /vs
distant mountain veiled in fog. /jt

Blazing fire —
children's gifts wrapped between
sips of cocoa /jt

-Vaughn Seward; CA
-Janice Thomson; CA



A babe in a stall
The odor of hay and straw
Redemption is born

-Quentin Clingerman; US


ponsettias abloom-
the choir sings clad in white
and red

-Gillena Cox; TT

I borrow a bit from Sparks Journal Volume 6, No 1 (Sept. 1983)Copyright James L. Mulhern)
... and eight hours and thirty two minutes later we were in Trininad for an overnight stop. .. We slept in tents located in a swampy area and after some depressing chow were lulled to sleep by the croaking of frogs. ...

Perhaps a short haiku for that:

the croaking of frogs --
a lullaby for
a transit passenger
