The exercise:

Write two haiku about: Christmas presents.

Looking for a little something special for that writer in your life? Here's a list that you just might find helpful!

Back at the gym this morning. I make note of this strictly to ensure that you guys are aware of when I go, which then allows you to call my lazy butt out when too many days pass between trips to the weight room.

Mine:

Sorry, little one,
all your gifts are really for
Mom and Dad this year.

*     *     *

So this is Christmas,
my very first one. I love
these empty boxes!

I'd like the coffee from that list. All the coffee. Everyone's coffee, in fact :)
Congratulations on the gym, and I shall look forward to calling you out for not going!
I think I like your first haiku better this week because it's so appropriate. I'm in the middle now of people deciding that only children need Christmas presents, and I completely agree with them. I have enough junk to house without getting more :)

Christmas presents
Shake, shake, crack, tinkle...
Your Christmas present is now
Not quite so pretty.

I thought hard for you,
Chose this very carefully:
It's a gift voucher.

No wrapping paper
Just be happy you got it
Dad is too lazy

I want that one and
That one and that one and that
One and that one and . . .

Such good intentions
Fancy paper and a bow
Where is the receipt?

Greg - I thought you might :)

Hah, nice job with the first one. Well, with both of them, really, but the first in particular.

David - haha, oh man. I read your first one while hearing my own voice in my head. Poor Max...

Anonymous - love it! I'm sure that sentiment will be repeated many, many times around the world this Christmas morning :)
