Twelve Days of Haiku

“Hai-ku: an unrhymed verse form of Japanese origin having three lines containing usually five, seven, and five syllables respectively; also: a poem in this form usually having a seasonal reference.”
When WDAV Traffic Manager Liz Syverson Barr passed around these Christmas haikus to staff this morning, we thought they were so much fun, we had to share them with you. So here they are. Do you haiku? If so share your creative gems with us by using the comments section of this blog.
Twelve Days of Haiku
by Liz Syverson Barr
Day 1:
Turkey, gravy, yams
Fill the plate and go again
Indigestions strikes.
Day 2:
Splendid old Blue Spruce
Eeek, what have I done to you!
Grotesque light bulb mess.
Day 3:
Tiny jingle bell
Holiday mood swings like you
Great fun? Not so much.

Day 4:
Stack of Chrismas cards
Procrastination abounds
One more glass of wine.
Day 5:
‘Round and ’round the mall
Tight parking means door dings and
Mad shopper syndrome.
Day 6:
Deck the merry halls
Drink like a sailor, next day
Office party blues.
Day 7:
Eight Plastic Reindeer
Pseudo Santa palms a wave
Joy to you and me.
Day 8:
White Christmas with Bing
It’s a Wonderful Life, too
My favorite things.
Day 9:
Dark Clouds gathering
Snowflakes increase momentum
Oh look, a blizzard.
Day 10:
Festive little sweets
Ginger Bread men with icing
Love on Santa’s plate.
Day 11:
Pretty paper wrap
Discarded, as if old news
The moment has passed.
Day 12:
The world is silent
Light shines through indigo night
Seek grace from above.
