Welcome to the penultimate day of the Haiku Advent Calendar. I hope you’ve been keeping up with them all and enjoying them.
Do you think it’s perfectly acceptable to be tucking into the Christmas food cupboard now. Who else loves Twiglets? Today’s haiku is… we made wool baubles like snowballs soft and pure white; the treetop star beamed. Thanks again for joining me, come back for the finale tomorrow. Take It Easy Ho ho ho Paul
Welcome back to Paul Writes Poems!
Day twenty-two and I can’t quite believe how fast December is going. I think I’ll make myself a ‘hot choctail’ later … But first, here’s the haiku of the day… To the North Pole, Santa lists float up chimneys; Children smile with hope. Thanks for joining me today. I will wrap my presents today. I’m on sticky tape rations though!!! Take It Easy Paul
Welcome back! Good Morning! It’s day twenty-one of the Haiku Advent Calendar.
I hope you’re enjoying the mix of haiku I’m producing on the run-up to Christmas Day.
Today’s haiku is a true story that happened a few years ago…
The turkey’s too large,
another midnight axe job; tin foil hysterics.
Come back tomorrow for day twenty-two’s haiku.

It’s the final countdown until Christmas. Santa and his elves are busy working away in the toy factory and the holiday armadillo is trying to keep things together…
I still haven’t wrapped my presents yet but I’ll get round to it. Have you wrapped your non-North Pole gifts yet?
The jingle bells ring
every time the Christmas tree’s touched; fairy lights dancing.
Thanks for joining me today, maybe enjoy a foil-wrapped chocolate as a treat or a mug of hot chocolate. Remember to come back tomorrow for day twenty-one.
Take It Easy,
Welcome to day nineteen of the Haiku Advent Calendar. I hope you’re all well. The days are going by too quickly.
I’ve donned a Christmas jumper to take part in the regular writing group I attend today so I’m festive and warm, like a good mulled wine or cider. Now for today’s haiku… Starlings murmur like prudes gossiping on bare trees; the air is frozen. Thanks for reading and joining me today. If you missed it I was part of the cast of the Christmas Episode of Eat The Storms Poetry Podcast yesterday if you want something to listen to today. The Spotify link is below;

On day eighteen of the Haiku Advent Calendar, my true love gave to me – oh sorry I got a little mixed up there!!!
I’ve only got two presents left to buy and they’re both going to be bought online. What a relief. I still need to wrap though.
Today’s haiku is…
The low winter sun
shines on the decorations; the tree lights have fused.
Hope you all have a great weekend. I’m appearing on the Christmas Episode of Eat The Storms Poetry Podcast at 5pm (GMT) so keep an eye out for more on that later.

It’s day seventeen of the Haiku Advent Calendar. That means only seven days until Christmas Eve.
My house is filled with the scent of my tree, clementine and wrapping paper. I’ve had Magic TV on for all the old festive tunes. Here’s a haiku witnessed from the comfort of my kitchen; lethal black ice harshly tripping up school kids; torn Christmas jumpers. Join me again tomorrow for another haiku as part of the Haiku Advent Calendar. Take It Easy Paul
