poetry | 101 | rehab | wrapping

snow floated down every once in a while, but it was frail snow, like a memory fading into the distance
― haruki murakami


This is my first prompt for poetry | 101 | rehab since the WordPress Writing 101: Poetry course came to a close and I look forward to welcoming some new contributors!

My prompt this week is an attempt at a seasonal haiku. So, this week, express your feelings about the season, in haiku if it moves you, in some other way if not. What does this time of the year mean to you? Do you rejoice and hark the herald angels, do you eschew the commercial queue? Whatever your religion, your politics, your sensibilities, write a poem to describe what this time means to you.

Wrapped, packets with love

So late, the world turned

  1. I am a twit at copy/pasting badges. So I don’t. I’m still learning photo stuff. I tried some photo stuff in one program and tried without success to get it into another program. Arg. They speak a language I have yet to interpret.
    Anyway… I’m working on a new BeeBee… I add that link in a few…Maybe even a haiku too.

    First things first; BeeBee: Homefield Advantage?

    encased enshrouded bound tight

  2. I just realized that another of my poems (a trio of haiku) fits the theme, as far as gifts (and the wrapping thererof).
    Exile Christmases: http://wp.me/p5BCD4-kY – different families have different customs, and sometimes family members are not in on the morphing of customs over the generations.
