Background

This combination of Haiku and Senryu is about how someone, who hibernates alone during the holidays now, reminisces about the warm family memories of childhood.

Haiku-Senryu

Jingly Christmas bell

Santa sang and stockings hung

Presents, fairy tales

***

Chaste and clean white snow

Serene view from our window

Wind chills below ten

***

Cake in the oven

Mama’s famous roast chicken

Sister’s yummy pie

***

Pleasant mild sunshine

Golden rays on the dry porch

Cold breeze settling in

***

Family skit on stage

Fire burning warm and bright

The actors sizzle

***

All but memories

Of a merry yesteryear

The night falls heavy

***

Fire to candles

Pure snow to nerve-wrecking chill

Cold food on a plate

***
