Christmas Eve Stress: Haiku

The  meat  is  ready  to  go

The table is  set

Now  tell me  will it now  snow.


Christmas  Tree lights wink  and  glow

Christmas presents wrapped

Family  niggles  peak and  flow


Father Christmas is  tired out

The  reindeer sleeping

All presents are  handed out.

    It will snow
    when you least expect it
    and it will snow in memories
    and these memories will fall upon you
    with a gentleness of snow

    Merry Christmas, Willow x

      Thank you Martin Shone
      For your beautiful words
      They serenade me like a song.
      Your poems have fluttered past me all year like birds.
      I know it will not snow but in my head it might
      Like your words of the gentleness of snow will help spirits take flight.
      Merry Christmas Martin. xx

    Excellent poem(s)…. now, the stress is gone ’til next time….

    As for snow, as a native Californian, I regard it’s presence as an affront to my sensibilities, and try to avoid it at all costs…. Brrrrr…

    Hope you had a lovely Christmas, milady Willow….

        Ah, sorry, slight miscalculation… I must be getting old; I used to such easy time changes in my head… I was off by a good three hours…

        I’ll change my verb to have/had, okay?

        Thanks; be well, and happy, milady. All the best to you, and yours…
