Christmas is just around the corner, and it is the season to be merry. I’m not a Christian, but I like Christmas like any other person on the street. To me, Christmas is about reconnecting with family and friends, and the spirit of giving.
For RonovanWrites Weekly Haiku Challenge this week, I was inspired by the season, Christmas songs, choirs, family reunions and the word prompts ‘song’ and ‘day’. 🙂
Songs of Joy
Let’s sing songs of joy
On this Christmas Day
For RonovanWrites Weekly Haiku Poetry Prompt Challenge #34, the words were ‘beast’ and ‘day’. I challenged myself to write something meaningful for the second week that I’m participating in this fun activity. At last, I decided to write something on the 2004 tsunami.
Beast & Day
The wave was a beast
The day it came, the land shook
Time and reason ceased
An original haiku by Khor Hui Min 3 March 2015
This haiku is dedicated to the survivors of the 2004 Indian Ocean Tsunami.
