Christmas Haiku

If you were looking for my Query Letter Blogfest entry - it's up there on its very own page!

My offerings are not your usual Christmas fair ...

Which one resonates most with you?

Christmas feast groaning
Presents heaped beneath the tree
Where is Bethlehem?

Homeless and hungry
Cold seeps through rags, stench and grime
Open heart and home

Excitement mounting
Soul deep joy transforming all
find the inner child


  1. Oh, all three of the are wonderful! Insightful and deep. Wow.

    I love finding the inner child :)

    Very well done!

  2. Moving on many levels. In other news:

    My apologies to you Dom. I have been working 12 hours a day on my edits and re-reading to get my ms done. I didn't look up the word (t..t). To my American ears it sounds like "all that." Now that I know better I posted an apology. I'm not removing it because I'd have to delete the whole thing, including comments. I may still do that after today.

  3. Oh I love them all - they are thoughtful and powerful but I like the third one - it spoke to my very own inner child!! Thank you!! Take care

  4. They are all very poignant. The second one really grabbed me. Well done Dominic :)

  5. The second one was my favourite. Lovely message there.


  6. These are EXCELLENT, Dom
    So how do you get snow across you blog page? :O)

  7. I'm a social worker; number 2 of course.

    But they are all so rich and poignant.

    I can think deep enough to write Haiku, but I enjoy it all the same.


  8. Lovely haikus! Often I feel in the glamour and bustle of Christmas, somehow the inner child is lost!

  9. I love how you've touched on more than just Christmas and presents. I adored the third one, but the other two will make me stop and think about what Christmas actually means.

  10. inner child is all
    grin and smile to be for me
    santa found great joy

  11. With two 3 year olds running around here it has to be the last.

    Your in my prayers.
