2019 Christmas Countdown 5: It’s Christmas Haiku


Now That It’s Christmas,
Show love and peace to all men,
And let your love shine.

Now That It’s Christmas,
Show love and peace to all men,
In Gods name Amen.

2019 Christmas Countdown 4: Christmas Shop Fronts


Shops get all dressed up,
At this time of year,
To share and be known,
The Christmas Cheer.
***
Windows with lights round,
And deer on the ground,
Santa sat in the back,
Next to a present
***
Frosty sells another toy,
For a stocking of a girl or boy,
The shops flow with Christmas joy,
At this time of year.

2019 Christmas Countdown 3: They’ve Defrosted Bublé


It’s a sure sign Christmas has come,
As the great singer wakes,
From his slumber down under,
And shares a song with everyone.
***
A new album and some cheer,
Maybe a sweet jungle bells,
Or something more swing,
We all recognise his deep voice.
***
So lets acknowledged,
They’ve defrosted Bublé,
And that it must be,
Close to Christmas.

2019 Christmas Countdown 2: Christmas Card


Christmas comes but once a year,
Helping people remember their,
Roots and where they come from.
Instead of fighting and hating,
Share love and go skating,
Trim the turkey and share in drinking.
Merry singers stand on corners,
Announcing their choral warmers,
Sharing joy and love to walkers.

Come and join the cheer with me,
And dance around the Christmas tree,
Rejoice for all the world to see,
Denouncing hate and animosity.

Advent 2019: 1 Hope


In this time of darkness,
Where the world seems bleak,
We are given one message,
Sunday this week,
As we light our candle,
With purple hue,
We are told to feel,
The hope in me and you.

2019 Christmas Countdown 1: Advent Sunday


Day number one,
Of the Christmas Countdown,
Another year draws to a close,
Celebrate the Advent with me,
While the winter wind blows.
***
Each day to Christmas,
Then on to new year,
A poem will be published,
Chronicling the journey there,
***
While Advent Sunday,
Falls on the first,
May this December be fun,
Right through to January.
