Christmas Haiku

Six thirty wake-up
Blessed by smell of strong coffee.
Hot, black Christmas cheer.

Squeals of sheer delight!
Santa came! Tidy tree scene
Devolves to chaos.

Santa gives dog a bone.
Dog growls at boy, gets lesson
In sharing her toys.

Half an hour it takes
To open presents. Best half
Hour of whole kid year.

Nick expected worst
Christmas ever. Got Legos.
Best Christmas ever.

Nick and George build the
Alien Conquest HQ.
So. Many. Pieces.

Jack expected best
Christmas ever. Got Kodak.
Best Christmas ever.

Snap-happy Jack takes
Pictures of hands, feet, phone, toys
Pillow, toilet, self.

Mom and Dad get Nook
Tablets. The end times approach.
Joy, joy, joy, joy, joy!

Charge Nook before use.
Three hours before playing.
Mimosas pass time.

Dog needs to be walked.
No one whines; Christmas spirit
Shines. A miracle.

Dog deposits mulch
On carpet. Nom, nom, nom, nom!
Mom vacuums. She’s Scrooge.

Rib roast makes house smell
Like expensive restaurant.
Thank you, God, for cows.

Thank you, God, for hope
And joy and celebration
And peace and kindness.

Even greater thanks
For giving your Son to teach
Us how love should be.

  6. Great Haiku :) We had a Prime Rib feast on the 24th (bbq'd by hubby) which was to die for and Lego abounds here too LOL! Blessings and good luck with the move!
