A Winter Haiku and Seasons Greetings!

Hello again !

If anyone is still stopping by at my WP blogs, I wish you a very Merry Christmas and a peaceful and prosperous New Year. We have all earned it, after the last two extremely difficult years, throughout the world.

I have been keeping busy with a variety of creative projects, including getting back to writing after a (too) long hiatus. Always my best, most positive and productive strategy when it comes to coping with stress.

You can read more about my latest Kindle eBook: “Regrets: I’ve Had (Quite) a Few” available in January and a couple of holiday treats to share with you at my other WP blog, Veggies, Yarns & Tails: click here.

I Wish You Peace, Prosperity and All the Good Things in 2022!

Haiku Reflections: A Trio of Haiku Poems to Welcome the New Year!

DSCN2030

First snow of season.

A “Christmas-card” view, beckons.

Digging out the boots.

♥♥

Snowshoes. City park.

Untouched, winter wonderland.

Flash of white rabbit. 

♥♥

A new year begins.

Fresh palette, possibilities.

Raise a glass of cheer!

♥♥

I hope your year is off to a great start. 🙂

All poems from:

Haiku Reflections II: The Four Seasons by Geraldine Helen Hartman

My Holiday Wishes….

Christmas for MPP 2014

 

The words to this beautiful song keep running through my mind lately.

Not actually a Christmas “tune” but the lyrics  seemed perfect for a holiday greeting

♥♥♥

PS: I’m catching up with some end-of-year projects right now so won’t be blogging much until the New Year. 

In the meantime, wishing you a magical holiday season! 🙂

Three Haiku Poems on the Cusp of Winter

image004

Pulling up the quilt.

Heavy snow, all through the night.

Winter on the way.

***

A chill in the air.

Wrapping my scarf, one more time.

Snowflakes from the sky.

***

A windy, cold night.

Branches strewn across the path.

Winter on the way.

***

PS: We had a bit of snow here in Interior BC, the past couple of days, but it’s melting now.

Winter IS on the way though.

Hope you enjoy these three haiku poems, on the cusp of this magical season to come. 

What is your weather doing? Any snow?

Have a wonderful week! 🙂

Light a Candle, Say a Prayer, Make a Wish…

How well I remember this lovely ritual from my childhood; visiting our small, neighbourhood church.

Now, I send out this wish to my blog friends:

That you will find the true wonder and magic of this beautiful season.

And may all your wishes for the new year come true.

PS: I am taking a short blog break.

Will be around to visit at your blogs and then, see you next year! 😉

Haiku Reflections: Celestial Feast of Winter

This photo and haiku (haiga) came to mind yesterday.

I thought it would look rather pretty with the WP “snow” falling right now. 😉

Happy Weekend. 🙂

Holiday Haiku!

Christmas lights twinkle.

The Skater’s Waltz. A Swan Dive.

Snow softly falling.

***

Christmas Eve, midnight.

The choir singing far above.

Soon, gifts and giggles!

A new year begins.

Fresh palette, possibilities.

Raise a glass of cheer!
