Advent Calendar Haiku #12

Welcome to Sunday and day twelve of the Haiku Advent Calendar. I hope you’re having a lovely, relaxed weekend.

I’ve finished my Christmas read early and would love a Christmas murder mystery recommendation that I can finish before Christmas Eve. Please leave one below or tweet me at @PaulWritesPoems.

Sunday’s haiku is …

gilded pinecones,
add bling to the Christmas tree;
wrapping paper drought.

Remember to come back tomorrow for day thirteen as we gallop towards Christmas Eve.

Thanks and Take It Easy

Advent Calendar Haiku #11

It’s Saturday and day eleven of the Haiku Advent Calendar. I hope everyone has a great weekend and fits in something festive.

We’ll be decorating the house and watching a Christmas film at some point. Probably Elf, Polar Express or Santa Claus: The Movie.

I’ve also got a few things to be getting finished and sent off before Christmas week itself so I’ll be a busy elf for the next eight days.

So, without further ado today’s haiku is …

the deep moor snow drift
hides the squirrel’s nut supply;
log fire at the pub.

Thanks for reading and remember to come back tomorrow for another haiku.

Advent Calendar Haiku #10

We’re into double figures of days; that means only a fortnight left until Christmas Eve and the last of the Haiku Advent Calendar.

The days are going by far too fast to keep up with, I’ve still a few gifts to get! I hope I have enough time to finish my shopping.

So for day ten, the haiku is…

The starlings are perched
waiting for winter feed-balls;
watercolour sky.

Thanks for joining me and I hope you’re looking forward to the weekend. What plans do you have?

Advent Calendar Haiku #8

Where is the time going? It’s day eight of the Haiku Advent Calendar and I can’t believe it’s Wednesday already.

Today’s haiku was written in annoyance that no matter how hard I try I am sometimes (actually oftentimes) clumsy such as breakfast today.

So without further ado…

My Nordic jumper
is stained with clementine juice;
sleet flurries outside.

Have you had any mishaps so far this December? Let me know.

Advent Calendar Haiku #7

Welcome to day seven of the Haiku Advent Calendar. It’s Tuesday, I hope yesterday went by quickly for you.

A couple of people have asked why I’m doing this calendar. The main reason is to get back to haiku writing regularly, as it is a great form to play with.

Today’s haiku for you is…

This mulled wine is
heating up our shopping trip;
black ice on Grey Street.

If you’ve missed any so far, I’ve linked to days 1 through 6 below.

Day 1
Day 2
Day 3
Day 4

Advent Calendar Haiku #5

Hey, thanks for coming to read today’s haiku. I can’t believe it’s already five days in. December is speeding past.

The soft cotton snow,
betrays the foxes footsteps;
Christmas lights twinkling.

Please return tomorrow for day six. If you’ve missed any of my Advent Calendar Haikus, they are still available to read on my site.
