Christmas Haiku

bob bobbing
in the wind
plastic snowman

don’t like vegetables
except carrots

i love my snowman
even when he isn’t

About the Writer

Christine R Milne

Christine is a poet who loves writing haiku. Some of them have been published in journals and anthologies. Luckily other poems pop into her head. Most of them are for children which is not surprising as she enjoys being a teacher and a mother. Also, creating poems that connect with a child’s view of the world is really special. This is helped by her favourite hobby, trying not to eat too much chocolate.
