LIGHT: so sweet
(renga series ending with a haiku)

mini cannoli
shells await a light filling;
ricotta cheese white

sugar, pistachios too
into cup shells baked crispy

with chocolate coats
around their rims to smooth out
some imperfections

homemade gifts to take to lunch
and dinner with family

days filled with laughter
so much joy, with young and old
…over the river

(g) hc13/ LIGHT; sharing is caring (tanka, haiku) (12.24)

“We are told to let our light shine, and if it does, we won’t need to tell anybody it does. Lighthouses don’t fire cannons to call attention to their shining- they just shine.”
Dwight L. Moody

LIGHT; sharing is caring
(tanka, haiku)

interfaith Christmas;
joy of sharing and learning
spiced with heritage

sauerkraut, bratwurst, turkey,
La Florentine almond treats

potato latkes, green
pepper and onion pizza,
homemade cannoli

fun traditions seamlessly
blend encompassing all light

family is key
filling the day with in-laws;
Interfaith Christmas

“It’s the most wonderful time of the year…” So goes the time-honored classic. The solstice has passed, and we now approach the heart of the holiday season. Your kigo for the week is Christmas.

Note: The green pepper and onion pizza is a family ‘joke’ not so much from heritage – but is continued in honoring the memory of a loved one.

Affirmation
(A mini haibun)

There are some things that
I might purchase that share
the local stores’ name – or
from the farmer whose family
name has generationally stood

quality applies
to so much more than items –
you can take my word
