It was at cockcrow, when, i started recording this story whispered to me by my muse. Come along with me. Lets explore 'Anansi and The Twelve Days of Christmas' haibun style (ie. prose and haiku verses)
"Wake up! wake up Anansi" said the Mrs Anansi.
"Our children are downstairs ripping open presents and they haven' t even been to church, nor as yet had their breakfast; Wake up! wake up Anansi " she shook him again and again.
Then, she left the room, singing softly to herself the Christmas carol "On the first day of Christmas my true love gave to meeee ... a partridge in a pear treeeeee.
--Meanwhile in Germany as reported by Ralf Bröker
she only knows
this one song
--And in Serbia as reported by Tatjana Debeljacki
in the house of love
pleasantly and divine,
green Christmas tree
and green eyes
--And in Romania as reported by Gheorghe Postelnicu
--And in the USA as reported by Adelaide Shaw
dusk coming on
on Christmas day
once more Silent Night
--And in Trinidad and Tobago as reported by Keith Simmonds
standing room only
in the cathedral
a massive turnout
at the midnight mass...
Many religious observers ascribe that the 'Partridge in a Pear Tree' gift is symbolic for Jesus
