Post Series: The Christmas Series: Introduction with poem

Today is December 1.  Starting today, and through at least December 23rd, there will be a Christmas post series on M. Sakran’s blog of and about poetry and poetry related things.  This means, that the posts from now through at least December 23rd, will be Christmas related in some way.  The series is called, The Christmas Series.  Counting today’s post, the series will consist of at least seventeen posts.  The series may end on the 23rd, but may continue again starting on the 28th.  If it does, it will continue through January 5th, 2016.  A determination has not yet been made.

The previous post series have been Seven Apples, The Citrus Series, The Tea Series, and The Orange Series.  They can be seen here: Post Series.

To start the series, today’s post has a poem made of a haiku, a tanka, and an iambic tetrameter rhyming couplet put together:

The series starts here,
Christmas posts all in a row,
like Christmas lights on a roof.

Some posts may cause cheer,
some may cause contemplation,
and some may cause both,
like opening wrapped presents,
then helping homeless people.

So sing some songs and have some fun,
and think some thoughts before you’re done.
