Seasonal haiku

in the darkness -
we all try to light
candles.

*******************

strangely menacing -
four cartoon penguins march
on a Christmas card.


I've posted another seasonal haiku on Crafty Green Poet.
The Season for Writers Island

Juliet,
Candles and cards are truely depictions of the season and our desire to rise above the wretchedness of the world.

Two great little pieces! I'm glad I'm not the only one who finds penguins slightly sinister!

Crafty Green Poet said...

Keith - actually I love penguins, but these particular cartoon ones are definitely menacing and sinister!

Polona and Rel - thanks!

Both lovely.

Two nice ones. The penguins are like a New Yorker cartoon only better; and the frost is picture perfect. Thanks.

Vivid images of this season tinge with hope written in brevity in haiku form. Lovely as it paints picture and leave thoughts in the mind.

I wish you well this season.

Great Haiku's I adored the penguin one. They keep on marching in my head

SweetTalkingGuy said...

Yeah,
I can identify with the candle thing - although I suspect there is a deeper meaning than the obvious.
And hey, I think I've seen those penguins somewhere too!

The second one made me giggle, but the first one--oh, so profound. Beautiful symbolism.

Beautiful and fun. I love penquins. AND candles.
