Sometimes everything has to be enscribed across the heavens so you can find the one line already written inside you. Sometimes it takes a great sky to find that small, bright, and indescribable wedge of freedom in your own heart. David Whyte

Haiku: After-Christmas Peace

on December 27, 2014

Children’s joy past.
Time to nod by Christmas tree
Savor scents and lights.

    Beautiful. Did the grandchildren love your wonderful gifts of prose? 💖

      The gifts were for my three sons for now. They loved our surprise. Their Dad and I gave the journals to them while we were still sitting around the table after Christmas dinner. The stories that included my sons sparked wonderful conversation . No one got around to our England and France trip in the first reading. My oldest grandchild is 15 and I hope he and the other five will read our Family Travels book in due time. Thanks so much for being interested in my gift. ❤

  2. I’m enjoying all your haiku!

    Thanks, Christy. i enjoy writing them. I’m wondering about grouping them in themes instead of just “blurting” them out.
