Holiday haiku

winter solstice -
mother is still knitting
her daughter's muffler




                               shortest day -
                               I light up my only
                               scented candle




                                                             funniest Christmas -
                                                             my aunt's lost geese
                                                             tangled in tinsel




                                       children underneath
                                       the Christmas tree -
                                       grandma's starry eyes




Christmas candles -
hundreds of rainbows
in the child's eyes




                                                          growing old
                                                          in an ever-changing world -
                                                          New Year's clouds




                               stove fire lights
                               on New Year's Eve -
                               shadows until dawn




New Year's Day -
sunlight sparkling
over the glasses
