Christmas Haikus

Written for the annual Hilton Family Christmas Eve Talent Show 2017

 

Birth

Born in a stable

Wrapped tightly in swaddling bands

The Star shining bright

 

Mary

The Virgin Mary

Destined to raise the Christ Child

Mother of Our Lord

 

Youth

A kind boy from birth,

Wise, instructing his elders

Not perfect but good

 

Miracles

Caused the blind to see

The lame to rise, deaf to hear

He came to heal all

 

Atonement

Bled in the Garden,

Forsaken upon the Cross,

Killed for you and me

 

Resurrection

A cold, empty tomb,

She wept and asked, “Where is He?”

He replied, “Mary…”

 

Return/Spirit of Christmas

Jesus is here still

His spirit dwells within us

And this is Christmas
