family reunion --
grandpa played Santa
on Christmas
[Dr. Kumarendra Mallick Hyderabad India]



One day 'til Christmas Day
Relaxed to contemplate
God coming to Earth as Man
❧✿❧
Christmas Day
Mild and clearing
Presents galore
Friends and Family
Food, food, food! And chocolate covered strawberries
Who would want more?

An excited mixed breed small dog
bounding around
A baby girl taking her first steps
Staying close to parents
The warmth of God's love
Who could want more?
[Quentin clingerman; USA]



Forest walk
chestnuts awaiting
Christmas eve
[Marie-Alice Maire; France]




[haiga by Ana Drobot; Romania]



Christmas morning
the solemn quiet in the house
of empty nesters
[Adelaide Shaw; USA]




savor of fruit tags
a circle of sliced pears to
the Christmas salad
