    Christmas Poem

    there is a man
    on a street corner
    with a sign
    that reads
    “Jesus is the Reason
    for the Season”

    my wife suggests
    we take up
    the opposite corner
    holding a diagram
    of a tilted earth

    David, thanks for noting that — I'd somehow forgotten to include the prior publication note when I published this. I've added it to the main part of the post now too.

    Thanks Dylan – I didn't want to annoy anyone at the British Haiku Society. I couldn't get my comments to work, either, so I may have posted twice.

    Thanks for publishing – good to see it on your site. I have been enjoying the other work.

    Cheers!

    Brightly lit reminder of the fragile hold we have on existence, the season fraught with loss as well as gifts of life, a surprising and stunning image, and a bold one.

    I like the haiku and the image works well too.

    Christmas has been the season of emergency services lights and alarums.
