Christmas Haiku by The Luther Poets
Online - 15 December 2020
Missing Toe and wine Cliff’s song with corrupted word Christmas in decline
Christmas calls Despite Corona cares Children’s bright laughter flares.
Sacred Oak of Zeus When forest covered the lands Little acorns grew.
Christmas is for life. A memory store and more. Breathe it in and out.
It is Covid time The Christmas cracker hat sits Lone upon his head
Another Christmas Badly handmade paper chains Yuletide revelries
Christmas lights ignite Black Aurora Foxtail Skies Awe-inspiring sights
Christmas Past and Present
Our Christmases past, Festive freedom together. Not Christmas present.
Yuletide shutdown Leisure to complete My tax return.
Silent Night again marks despairing year’s ending. Hope germinates now.
Anticipation Child’s delight for Christmas Day Santa’s on his way The Luther Poets were founded by the late Bob Sheed, now convened by Anne Warrington. Both are co-founders of Poetry Performance, an affiliate of Arts Richmond.
