(Inc. Haiku) Boxing Day is Over (00:00)

(Inc. Haiku) Boxing Day is Over (00:00)

That’s it!

All gone!

Never to return.


We shall get another one,

next year,

and the year after that,

and so on.

Boxing Day was here;

but now it is no longer,

“Bye, bye, Boxing Day!”

Boxing Day #24 (23:00)

Boxing Day #24 (23:00)


Nighttime ones!

With just an hour to go

to reach the midnight

twenty-four hours on

from when this day started.

And all those words

(I never counted them)

written with the purpose

of filling the day

(at regular intervals – mostly)

with my thoughts and ideas upon…

well, upon all sorts of everything.

No classics, I fear;

but, maybe, just maybe,

the idea for a short story,

and, as the year end beckons,

perhaps I can finish with a flourish.


Boxing Day #23 (22:00)

Boxing Day #23 (22:00)

Well, the end of the day is approaching fast – the hours have flown like blocks of sixty minutes;

the night has beckoned

and was the day as I reckoned it?

Well, again, it has been easy at times to write my words,

and harder at others.

If you have followed all or some of this

then I thank you for your participation.

If, however, you have been spared

the ordeal, then you may have been one of the lucky ones.it is not my place to judge.

Tomorrow will be a new day

and I shall just write a few random things, as I do.

I shall also try to read a few posts from others – writing does not always allow reading, you know.

Agatha Christiemas – Boxing Day 2018 #22 (21:00)

Agatha Christiemas?

What shall we find with the new Poirot?

Shall it be ABC 5*

Parts 1,2 and 3?

Or will it be a Hickory Dickory Shock

to the system?

Shall I have to get the 3:10 from Paddington to Bear it?

Who knows whether John Suchet

can be bettered

or equaled…

it is, perhaps,

just a previous reincarnation

Boxing Day 2018 #21 (20:00)

Eight o’clock

After Eights?


Another drink?

Or crash out in front of the cardboard box

(the one that Boxing Day

is named after)

Anyway, start with the After Eights

and we’ll take it from there.

Boxing Day 2018 #20 (19:00)

Boxing Day 2018 #20 (19:00)

It’s dark now

and we can’t see

the cows on the hills

or the sheep in the fields

because we are indoors.

A Song for Boxing Day 2018 #19 (18:00)

A Song for Boxing Day 2018 #19 (18:00)

(Playing the music of Yesterday by The Beatles)


(Then music changes)

We saw a tractor

round the road;

the tractor had

a heavy load/…

We saw the same tractor

again today

and all he had was a bale of hay.

And where was he taking

that bale of hay?

I do not know

I cannot say;

perhaps to drop off in a field

to help increase the animals yield;

the sheep, the cows, the horses too;

though what a horse does yield

I do not know –

do you?
