Carpe Diem Sparkling Stars #15: Hanging Our Stockings

Christmas Stockings Haiku

Kristjaan Panneman:
Christmas stockings  
hanging above the fireplace   
awaiting presents

no fancy stockings, no fireplace...
only our everyday socks
pinned on a stuffed chair

goodies in our "stockings"...
an orange, ribbon candy, walnuts
food for the gods, no wait- grateful kids!

No stockings here, but it's one of
a few Christmas photos from
my brother's and my childhood.

Love reading your haiku and thanks so much for sharing these memories ... which brought back mine as well :-)

What a great old Christmas photo. I don't think there are any Christmas photos from when I was growing up, but we have plenty of our kids and grandkids!
