Holiday memories




wrapping gifts, boxes
of love in red, gold ribbons,
poinsettia blooms 

~0~0

morning church bells ring,
laughter of children's playing, 
sounds of joy abound  


~0~0  


breakfast of rice cakes,
purple yams and coconut,  
sunlit holiday


Written for Few Miles Haiku Challenge 2012 for the month of February:   Day 10- Special Day in my Life . The special times for me are Christmas holidays with my family.

  2. Many special moments and memories result from our favorite holidays. I have not heard of purple yams ... but I love the orange ones ... and everything taste better with coconut in any form. Joyous set!
