Poems for Christmas


Most years I write a poem for Christmas. Here are the ones I like best:

Haiku for an Advent Calendar

Wait and see (Simeon and Anna)

The bleary cows

There for them

The magi tell of their journey

The adoration

The dream of the magi

The Magi return to their own country by another way



The magi remember

First light





Here is a selection of my haiku. They are a mixture of poems whose content chimes with the true Japanese haiku tradition and others that use the haiku form to encapsulate a reflection.
