Haikus for Christmas

Children / Poetry


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!

William Elliott Kern: Hi Jan, sorry it took so long...but good up to chapter 10.

crissy: Awesome work. The characters are so beautifully flawed and easy to relate to. The protagonist Bethany Hill is a woman that I would definitely want to meet in real life. The author has managed to make me visualize the story like a movie. The two time frames of past and present are also so beautifu...

Melissa Orruego: I read this story and found it quite enjoyable. I like the twist on the usual were-wolf story. It was well written and had a happy ending.

Laraine Smith: My only suggestion on the grammar is to use I have it bookmarked on Google Chrome. I see myself in the determination in this beautiful story! I have Cerebral Palsy, and I have dreams that I have been working hard for, too! The humor made me laugh!

Fiona Stubley: Very well written, interesting content, looking forward to more books. The author has an individual style which they should be proud of. Keeps the reader interested. Please read this you won't be disappointed.

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. :)
