Holidays and Hibernation - Senryu-Haiku Poem Collection

Rinita is a creative writer, with focus on poetry. She delves into several forms including Haiku/Senryu, Sonnets, Free Verse, and Prose.

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

***
