Hooked on Haiku for Noel

HAVE YOURSELF A MERRY LITTLE CHRISTMAS
Click blank rectangle to hear the enchanting voice of Ella
while you read the haiku below:

This week's theme: Noel or noël  (nowell) means Christmas,
derived from the French word Noël also meaning born.


Christmas Carolers
Good will towards everyone
Mince pies and mulled wine

Nativity Plays
Angel Gabriel grinning
Inn Keeper adlibs

Following a star
The Christmas story unfolds
Shared by all the world.

A star in the East
Turns to snowflakes in the West
Christmas is coming.



Decorations found
Resplendent pine trees sparkle
Needles everywhere



Snow falls deep outside
Kitties await Christmas treats
Will Santa make it?


The Winter Solstice
Turns short days into longer
Heralding rebirth



Oooh I just received this award from Kangaroobee's blog.
THANK YOU SO MUCH.
