Christmas decor packed away
right after New Year
wise men looking for the star
see its light through bubble wrap
Linked to JusJoJan day 15, which is also one-liner Wednesday. However, this was inspired by Chevrefeuille’s prompt about sweet dreams and Poets and Storytellers United myth-placed. I hope it’s okay that I basically made up my own mythical place.
Candy tall as trees
A chocolate river flows
Sugar spun to clouds :
The substance of children’s dreams
A place with life always sweet
Here are two tanka poems on the theme of transformation, for Heeding Haiku
Evergreen bedecked with lights,
Ornament memorials —
A shelter for wrapped presents
Scarves adorn shiverers’ necks,
Apple cider held
In hands ready to receive,
Leaning into winter’s day
For Frank J. Tassone’s haikai prompt this week, we are writing about the Cold Moon, or the full moon of this month. It will happen on December 12th, which also happens to be the feast of Our Lady of Guadalupe, so I wrote this.
Atop a cold, wintry moon
Woman clothed with stars
For Frank J. Tassone’s haikai prompt, about falling leaves this week.
Poised on the point of falling :
Waiting snowflakes see
This week’s Heeding Haiku with Chèvrefeuille has the theme of Halloween.
Pumpkins and ghosts gone
Now on to Christmas season —
Wait, where’s Thanksgiving?!
