Haiku is a a form of Japanese poetry with 17 syllables in three unrhymed lines of five, seven, and five syllables, often describing nature or a season. The dichotomy, of course, is the Japanese traditionally do not celebrate the Christmas holiday.
Here are my gifts to you. A Haiku poem from me and a sublime duet by Michael Franks and Veronica Nunn performed in just where you would expect, Tokyo. The poem owes a generous nod to the song’s lyricist, Michael Franks.
Peace, prosperity and goodwill to all in 2010!
A season of joy
When I give my love to you
