MID-DECEMBER HAIKU

Below freezing nights,

Houses show their Christmas lights…

Electric socks–feet sweat!

WELCOMING CHRISTMAS LIGHTS

WELCOMING CHRISTMAS LIGHTS

Coming home at one or two

AM, is hard to do…

But at Christmastime

Those colored lights shine,

As cheery beacons for you!

Very few stay on overnight,

Considering the “cost” of light…

But the few that do

I’m happy to view,

Coming home past beautiful sights.

Come home before midnight

And most of the lit ones in sight….

Feature deer and elves

Or brightly lit shelves

That Santa will see so bright.

So driving home from work

Late night has its perk…

Lighthouse beacons

Of the peace we’re seeking

Is closer..ahead…no irk!
