Haikus for Christmas

By Laraine Smith All Rights Reserved ©

Poetry / Children


Inspiration came from both the website for Panoramic Images and the soundtrack for "The Peanuts Movie."

Chapter 1

(HAIKU #1) A Swedish Gingerbread House!

A gingerbread house;

Candlelight glows from windows!

It comes from Sweden!

(HAIKU #2) Come To Chicago!

Outside theatres,

Christmas horns play their music!

Come to Chicago!

(HAIKU #3) Skating Rinks Are Full!

On Christmas Morning,

New York City comes alive!

Skating rinks are full!

(HAIKU #4) Everyone Dances!

There are violins!

There are also guitars, too!

Everyone dances!

(HAIKU #5) Grown-Ups Are Kids Now!

There is jazz playing!

Games are also being played!

Grown-ups are kids now!

(HAIKU #6) Candles in the Windows!

Christmastime at night;

Candles shine in the windows!

They are magical!

(HAIKU #7) Candles Of Christmas!

Candles of Christmas,

They are bright, just like the stars!

They are magical!

jenneyescoto: I'm only six chapters in, yet I'm already hooked. It didn't start too slow nor too fast. It has just enough background information to keep the plot going in a decent pace. There are just some minor grammar mistakes and phrasing that could be easily corrected. Other than that, I'm really enjoying ...

Laraine Smith: I was also a victim of verbal, physical, and sexual abuse by my father. One time, he threatened to beat me with a belt. This story enabled me to talk about it. Thank you. :)

graceeming: I thought the whole story form the beginning was captivating, it really gave you the hunger that you were longing for in a story. Yes the end was not something that I enjoyed, but I recommend this to anyone that enjoys fantasy of this type.
