Christmas Haiku by The Luther Poets

Arts Richmond

Online - 15 December 2020

Christmas Haiku by The Luther Poets

Christmas words

Missing Toe and wine
     Cliff’s song with corrupted word
Christmas in decline

Christmas laughter

Christmas calls
   Despite Corona cares
Children’s bright laughter flares.


Sacred Oak of Zeus
   When forest covered the lands
Little acorns grew. 


Christmas is for life.
   A memory store and more.
Breathe it in and out.  


It is Covid time
   The Christmas cracker hat sits
Lone upon his head     


Another Christmas 
   Badly handmade paper chains
Yuletide revelries     

Northern Lights

Christmas lights ignite
   Black Aurora Foxtail Skies
Awe-inspiring sights

Christmas Past and Present

 Our Christmases past,
    Festive freedom together.
 Not Christmas present.


Yuletide shutdown
   Leisure to complete
My tax return.

Years’ End 

Silent Night again
   marks despairing year’s ending.
Hope germinates now.


   Child’s delight for Christmas Day
Santa’s on his way

The Luther Poets were founded by the late Bob Sheed, now convened by Anne Warrington. Both are co-founders of Poetry Performance, an affiliate of Arts Richmond.
