Haiku for the Holidays


Holidays are here
People rushing back and forth
Cash registers hum

Too much stress for all
Why hurry to go in debt?
Consumerism

Deeper values lurk
Just outside the bustling crowd
Try to bring within

What's it all about?
Let the glitter disappear
Look for one true gem

Sparkles from inside
Voices saying hi to friends
Twinkles in the eyes

Stillness in the night
Harmony without a price
Money not a source

Give yourself as Gift
Move more slowly, less in haste
Breathe a purer air
