Christmas Lights, a Sunday Haiku: Haiku-San

Shimmers in the tree

Red, green, yellow, blue – thy blink.

My smile reflects you.

I chose the name Haiku-San as it derives from Haiku, meaning unusual verse in Japanese (hai=unusual, ku=verse, strophe) and San, the honorific Japanese title when speaking about people. San is also the phonetic transcription of the first syllable of the English word Sunday, Sun-day hence Haiku-San, a Sunday feature on Alluring Creations involving Haiku I write.

Find all my book on Amazon. Enjoy!

Movie Music Monday, Love Actually, Christmas is All Around via @PatFurstenberg #Christmas #moviemusicmonday

Movie Music Monday, “Love Actually”, “Christmas is All Around” via @PatFurstenberg #Love Actually #Christmas #moviemusicmonday

Perhaps one of the most hilarious and romantic Christmas movie – British humor at its best – who can resist Emma Thompson’s honest performance, Liam Neeson’s heart braking, single dad rendition, Colin Firth’s romantic proof of love (so Victorian!) and Bill Nighy’s originality? Oh, and Alan Rickman, RIP, seven years before Severus Snape…

“I feel it in my fingers,
I feel it in my toes,
Christmas is all around me,
and so the feeling grows
It’s written in the wind,
It’s everywhere I go,
So if you really love Christmas,
C’mon and let it snow?
You know I love Christmas
I always will
My mind’s made up
The way that I feel
There’s no beginning
There’ll be no end
Cuz on Christmas,
You can depend
You gave your presents to me
And I gave mine to you
I need Santa beside me
In everything I do
You know I love Christmas
I always will
My mind’s made up
The way that I feel
There’s no beginning
There’ll be no end
Cuz on Christmas,
You can depend
Cuz on Christmas,
You can depend
It’s written on the wind
It’s everywhere I go
So if you really love me
C’mon and let it snow?
C’mon and let it snow?
So if you really love
C’mon and let it
If you really love me
C’mon and let it
Now if you really love me
C’mon and let it snow?”

The #MusicMonday meme was created by Drew @ The Tattooed Book Geek. You can pick a song that you really like and share it on Monday. I thoroughly enjoyed this blog feature on Mischenko’s lovely blog, ReadRantRockandroll .
