Silly Haiku Wednesday: Challenge

A reminder...You've been challenged! What's this week's theme? 
Challenge, of course!



Now that the silliness is out of the way, allow me to be serious for a moment with my "Challenge" haiku. Enjoy.


Seasonal Challenge


Advent is time for
Finding the Christ in Christmas.
Though "secular" tempts.





Hold fast and hold strong!
Prepare the way for our Lord!
Hope and joy awaits!

Next week's theme: The Spirit of Giving
Specifically, what are you doing to share the joy this season?

I love your haiku, Polly! I think we all need the reminder about what Advent and Christmas are really about and you're right, "secular" is there tempting us every step of the way.

Is your link to "you know...that blog" working? I have tried to go there to link up, but it's not taking me there....and I tried last week's, too....

I'm having trouble connecting to Jenn's blog this morning. The URL is http://youknowthatblog.com Sorry that the link isn't working. When Jenn's blog is up and running I'll be sure to make the necessary corrections. Thanks for the heads up Michelle!

I keep telling myself I will get into the Haiku Wednesdays and I don't...maybe I will be able to get my stuff together this afternoon.

BTW, great ones this week!

Do you hear sleigh-bells?
Could that be hoofs on the roof?
Jolly old Saint Nick!

I really liked that one. I have to say that even though I'm a Grinch and not in the holiday spirit, I do appreciate the true meaning of the holiday.

Tiffany said...

great post! we will do our best to keep the true meaning of Christmas in the season for our kids as they get older. how easy it is to get caught up in the presents, etc. and forget what it's all about.

Once again you rule!!

Jenn@ You know... that blog? said...

Pffft, your friends are feathered! What will it take to get them to join?! Well, besides money. Sorry. ;)

Yeah, my site was down for a bit this morning - the servers were attacked. Happens now and then, and it just happened at a time when our tech was en route to the office and couldn't deal with it immediately. All better now!!

Nice haiku, as always!

LarryG said...

definitely challenging!
way to Polly!

What a wonderful way to give thanks during Christmas.

Ms Bibi said...

Love your Haiku.

Having some issues with my Blogger. Apparently I am not following any blogs so I don't have any updates....almost missed your Haiku Wednesday.

Chanda @ The Eco-Cheap Mom said...

Lovely haiku! The holidays are so commercialized anymore...

Lissaloo said...

Wonderful Haiku, I enjoy reading these :)

babs said...

Hey Polly, just wanted to let you know I used your signature spice on my turkey this year. Oh my, it was so good. Cooked it in one of those large plastic turkey bags, added an onion to the cavity and a little chicken broth, then just let it go. Perfect!!

Graceful said...

I love your haiku -- and just what I need to hear this season, boiled down to exactly what matters.

La Gitana said...

I wish I was creative enough for Haiku! but alas, I am doomed... :) How are you doing Polly?

Life Laugh Latte said...

I call you the queen of Haiku. Salute the queen...Holly

Willoughby said...

Beautiful Haikus as usual!

Cynthia@RunningWithLetters said...

This is wonderful, Polly--I admire your ability to do this every week--I am not a poet!

gayle said...

Raoulysgirl said...

I love them both, but the first is very well put!

Awesome job, as usual!!!

Kimberly said...

Great job! I love visiting, and finding something new and old.

Christmas is special to all of our family. I love the holiday season.

Purple Flowers said...

I wasn't online much on Wednesday, but I've enjoyed your haikus!

Yesterday was busy, grandbabies galore.

So I'm late. Here goes.

A light in the sky
A star beckons from on high
Jesus, Light of Life
