Haiku Celebration


Take some time to set it right
Sense be restored

Mr. E and I had a wonderful Christmas celebration this year with our families.

We hung out with his children over dinner and good wine, presents, and eggnog, a hearty fire burning in the background, all while making music and laughter come alive.


We spent Christmas Eve and day with my family, over meals and games, too many gifts, and an over abundance of tall tales.


The patriarchs are now elderly and getting frail, the babies are running and screaming with their untold joy, those of us in between keeping it all together with love, hard work, and patience…

knowing that this rare time, with family all together, is what we live for and cherish above all else.

  1. Oh Dawn, this is so beautiful. Your elders wring my heart. We have no elders left in our family. In fact, Don and I are no doubt the oldest. I yearn for the grandbabies so I can watch my inbetweeners keeping it all together.

    Merry Christmas to you and your loved ones as this Holy Season continues thru Epiphany.

  2. how wonderful to celebrate with everyone… this is wonderful way to restore equilibrium… joyfully together… and then again in the hush when everyone goes home… balance. Happy New Year!

  8. i started early friday with such a bright hope for the day. so many haiku to visit, so many bright promises to fulfill. my day turned quickly on its heels into what became a living hell. for the last three weeks i have been battling extreme health concerns, i share this only to explain why i have been so hard pressed in visiting and leaving comments. yesterday took me to the very edge and this morning although i made it through an adverse med reaction with horrible vertigo, i am weak and undone. i do not like to write about my health issues, something i combat everyday to stay upright and among the living. but i see more and more of our haiku family dwindling away and i am sure many may have mistaken why, and taken it personally that i have failed to visit. this morning i am going to stay up long enough to be sure you all know that you have brought me comfort in my darkest hours without even knowing. for your kindness and patience i thank you with all my heart.
