Tis the season...

Tis the season for

holly and jolly moments

If you should choose so

Glistening snowfall

makes me glad for Florida

and the sunshine warmth

Holidays are here

it's time to say ho ho ho

and greetings to all


Smooth silky and sweet

who doesn't love chocolate

it brings peace on earth


Can't wait for Santa

to visit us Christmas Eve

and bring us presents

At dusk we enjoy

the holiday tree glowing

with luminous lights

Red green silver gold

adorn the neighborhood homes

with holiday cheer


To my hubber friends

eat drink be very merry

this seasonal time

If all else should fail

spike the eggnog with good booze

and say bah humbug!

      Linda,

      This is an excellent collection of haiku!

      I especially like what you wrote about chocolate bringing peace on earth. It certainly brings smiles in my household.

      I absolutely love Christmas because of the ambiance. Can't believe the holidays are rolling around so soon! I'm definitely staying away from the malls on Black Friday...so many traffic accidents in my town on that day, haha!

      Great job, as always, Linda!

      Sunshine, Sunshine - Gotta admire your haiku writing. Fun to read. My only problem with a haiku is that the term, haiku, always reminds me of a sneeze. :)

      Sunshine, this cheered me up this morning - it is quite chilly now in the north-east of England and I wish I was in Orlando complaining about the heat! Now that I know eating chocolate = peace on earth, I will make some peace....a lot of peace.
