gotta get a little holiday spirit

Filed under: Uncategorized — David Giacalone @ 12:40 am


 snowflake  As the following dagosan poems indicate, I’m still not quite in the holiday spirit.  Maybe a few more haiku and senryu from my friends will help.  If not, I’ve still got a couple weeks.


setting up the creche —
the Baby’s name
uttered over and over

married a decade
she hides
the mistletoe

married a decade snowflake
he buys
new mistletoe

that godless salesgirl said
“Happy Holidays!”

[for Steve Bainbridge]

christmas morning
the old retriever gets
all the innards



christmas evening
the goose she raised
all summer

Christmas pageant—                   snowflake  snowflake       
the one who had to get married
plays virgin Mary




another Christmas . . .
my parents visit
the son in prison

Christmas Day
  the exchange
    of custody

first snow…
settling into
old feelings
