Holiday Haiku

what’s the perfect gift? 
doll for Susie? truck for Tim?
shopping, choosing, that!

wrapping and tying
ribbon, paper everywhere
fun beside the tree

hanging ornaments
stringing lights from here to there
living room aglow

friends come to carol
kisses neath the mistletoe
eggnog, cookies, yum

holiday greetings
stamped and mailed both near and far
season’s love to share

and to all of you
I send love, good wishes too
happy holidays!

Written for One Shot Wednesday.
