Holiday Haikus
1. Transformation
Gray skies and sharp winds

Replaced by warm hearts and smiles.

Festive cheer renewed.


2.  Home
Home for holidays.

No sweeter phrase can be heard.

Home for holidays.

3. The Prodigal

Empty chairs around table.

Filled by prodigalís return.

True spirit once more.

Hi Andrew.  I really liked that first one especially.  I'm a big fan of Haikus so this really hit the spot.  After reading the third one again, it may actually be my favorit.  Its very clever.  Great job on all three.

Sweet poems that bring in the Christmas spirit for sure. I find it funny that you state in your biography that you're not much of a writer, because i find you to be a sensational writer.

Gee Andrew, is there anything you can't write? These are wonderful Haikus. I especially liked the last one. Keep up the great work...Hugz...Jillian

Like the contrast of the "gray skies" and "sharp winds" to the warmth of family and friends.  Nicely done!

I thought the repetition of the line "Home for holidays" really validated the second line. Lovely holiday Haikus...great thoughts. MMMmmm...good!! Gud on yah bud! =))

Andrew, you knocked it out of the park with this series of haikus.  They really go well together.  I have to say my favorites of the two are the transformation one and the prodigal one.  But they all three go so well together to sum up the feeling of the holidays.  Great job!

Andrew:  YOU got it down the first time.  These are very good.  Keep up the good creative writes.

A nice Haiku chain.
I wish I could write Haiku/Senryu
You did a fine job here - I liked "Transformation" best.
