The Special Season ( a Haiku)

Season of faithful followers...
Season of faithful followers...


The Special Season,

No more the Christmas reason.

Only in their dreams.


My special season,

The Christ Child's birth, the reason.

Some lost faith, it seems.


The sign, gift giving,

In that stable. long ago.

Golden chalice gleams.


Exchanging greetings,

Family time, get togethers.

Watching children's beams.

You've summed it up. The 'children's beams' are the best bit! Shame some can't respect those who believe in the Christmas 'reason'.

Short and very sweet, whonu.

Hi Whonu, we have absolutely lost touch with the true meaning and spirit of the season; and therefore we have lost the reason. Best to you,

Some stray but get glimpses. Hooray for them. We choose to keep our eye on the prize.

You're right, it is so commercial and has been for a while. I think some still remember what it is all about. Nice reminder.

I love how you transition from "The Special Season" and "No more the ... reason" to "My special season" and "... the reason". Thank you for writing this and merry Christmas!
