THEN write a one-paragraph or more statement about what inspired your haiku couplet
Happy Holidays AND Happy posting!
I want some figgy pudding damn you
What a lovely song,
Bring me some figgy pudding,
so sad no grammy,
I sung well for you,
so gimme your BMW,
okay fine, fruit cake.
this was inspired by my desire to be silly,
plus say something about Christmas,
I've never got anything form singing at Christmas,
this poem reflects that.
Good morning Winter.
Showing your beauty- Snow.
It makes us feel good.
Once a year, brings smiles..
Fallin flakes- pretty and wet.
Good night, "White Season."
This is inspired by the way the winter snow affects me.
It manifests itself in so ways - calm, hard, light or heavy- plenty of mood swings throughout the season, yet always beautiful to watch.
Gotta send BIG shouts out to Kim and Erik, for helping a sista Finally get this right.... Enjoyed chattin w/ ya both.
I like how you talk to winter in this very nice
Frozen in beauty
White snowdrifts of December
A scene of delight
Pine cones have fallen
From the evergreen branches
Now covered in snow.
'Neath the snow lying dormant
Waitng for spring.
Snow crystals sparkle
Early morning dew glistens
Both kissed by the sun.
Sculptured stained windows
Jack Frost painted with great care
A pane in the glass.
I was inspired to write these when one morning I looked through my front window, And saw the beautiful evergreens along the mountain side covered from Mother Natures cold blanket of snow.

ms sally you posted double haiku couplets
all very good though
I had never written Haiku before these are my first. I didn't realize they were double Haiku couplets. Thanks for your feedback. It is always greatly appreciated.
Uniquely, snow flakes;
flakes mush, mush melts,
melts hearts, freezes feet ....
White out, when needed,
our electricity runs
white out of power ....
For some reason we always romanticise snow - so here we have the good side, with the downside also to the fore - I like to write from an askew viewpoint !
Lovely haikusssssssss everyone - I really loved your write SALLY - eloquently stated! ALAN of course - bringing the humor for the season = Loved it!
AWESOME write V = the very last line of the couplet Good night, "White Season." = very nice - exquisite really.
Very nice write from ERIK as well -----> nice job you guys
When Diamonds Fall
Celestial ice dance
acrobatic diamonds fall
Crystalized glazed frost
snowflake kissing evergreens
My inspiration is part the Science of Snowflakes, and
part the aesthetic quality of snowflakes. With no
two snowflakes being the same, thus, no winter
images are the same. That is beautiful.....
Christmas is unfair,
When you live in Australia,
As there is no snow.
I can't be happy,
'Til my tummy is full up,
With food and fruit cake.
I wrote this after reading all these other entries about snow and romanticising about it all. I don't get snow here in Brisbane, and i want to see it so badly!! My favourite part of Christmas is the food and christmas pudding so thats what i wrote my second stanza about.
Kim- I liked the similies used to describe snow. Falling flakes can appear diamond like to the imaginary eye. I'm diggin this..after that DEEP submission of "Bravery Write", I can't doubt your craft and skillz.. :wink2:
Much luv your way....V3
of life, til it's Christmas time
too much joy, chaos
Wild flurries of snow
whole world is turned upside down :
God shakes our bubble
Alan McAlpine Douglas
Thinking of those kitch bubbles of glass you pick up and shake or invert to get mad snow-flurries - Christmas is exactly that, all (no not hell ! ) heaven breaks loose - frantic shopping, food preparation, family gatherings, fights, etc etc, til the flurry settles down and we get back to normal life.
The gift of giving
Santa's in a rush,
presents come to all of us,
no one makes a fuss,
I wanted this, Dad,
Santa thinks I've been so bad,
children whine and cuss,
Sometimes I write about the thing sthat are real that aren't exactly perfect,
I know the world and I know it not perfect, those parts become humorful,
and I was one of those greedy little children who wanted presents whining and fussing one year and never got anything, just like I deserved,
this moment in Christmas was allot easier than writing as beautiful as painted,
it still captures part of Christmas though.
Great Haiku Everyone!
I am in the middle of typing out the legend of the Peacemaker's birth for a Culture Class at our local college and this is what inspired me to write the following:
Bury war weapons
The Peacemaker's commandment
beneath a white pine
Eagle, a symbol
Everlasting peace between
Five tribal nations
Actually, now there are six nations in the Iriquois Confederacey but the Tuscarora did not join until much later.
Traditionalists believe that this is where the Christmas Tree originated. The first white settlers adopted this custom from the Iriquois but replaced the Eagle with a star. From here it went to Germany where St. Nicholas was added and then spread throughout Europe where St. Nicholas became Santa Claus.
snow fell crystaline
dog pissed all over it - yeah
child sipped on snowball
i saw - sunken hill:
god in his omnipotence.
for the truth: Christmas
inspiration of this very lonely and highly cynical haiku couplet: today I watched my own Mama run from turmoil of "you and your brother's nasty ways..."
suffered a horrid push and dislocated shoulder in the process... makes me wonder where is this God that so many claim to know...?
also inspired by a childhood fantasy-image of "yellow" snow ----> Mama always used to say - "play lovely and play good in the snow kids - just don't mess with the yellow snow" LOL
cynical though it may be - makes me wonder how I can be so hopeful about ultimate retribution at the same time.... ----innuendo of ugh----
Pine for the wildness of the brush,
ground of mush,
sap of Pine brings a loud hush.
Riding the branch down her slope,
it's thrusting trunk,
fulfilling her most requested hope.
The Pine decorated and standing
outside the bay window at the
Not sure if this is what you were
asken for, please advise??
Thank you Ms V for the kind words...:give_heart2:
Good one Ms Jacquii
Trumpets wail a song
Everlasting peace we sing
Clouds paint a lining.
Toast to harmony
Joyful tears bid war farewell
Blood stained spirits heal.
Inspiration was the theme itself...Everlasting Peace. I thought of the war, and our brave that we have lost, those who are injured, and those still fighting this war, families of the victims, and families of the soldiers still fighting. Endless....
