Silly Haiku Wednesday: The Spirit of Giving

(photo icon courtesy of

In loving the poor,
St. Nicholas showed kindness,
Revealing Christ's Love.

May we give this gift
Cheerfully, humbly, with joy.
Living the Gospel.

Meaning of Christmas?
It's not about receiving.
It's about giving.

Share the season's joy
With all those you come across!
May God bless you all!

Next week's theme? Guilty pleasures.

For more Haiku hijinks, please visit Jen over at You Know...that Blog?

Join the fun!
The basics:

Haiku is simple! 
It is 3 non-rhyming lines of 5, 7, and 5 syllables respectively 
(a great way to use your fingers!)

I always love your Haiku's. You should do a book with them in it!

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

Wonderful Haiku's! I fixed your link (you had it pointing to a haiku 2 weeks ago heehee)

Have a fabulous day!

Great Haikus, Christmas is about giving not receiving. I love picking out things for people and watching them open it. We're tying to take more time to spend with friends and family too - great memories are some of the best presents that stay with you for a long time.

I wish I was as
Creative as you, Polly
Haikus hurt my head

But as long as you
Crank these out every Wednesday
I think I'll be fine

Wonderful job with these---I would do them, but I want my girls' birthday post to stand alone today!

I love the lines that say it's about giving and not receiving. So true & I wish more people would realize that....
