Haiku from the EK Centre 22/12/12

Busy and buzzing
Mall in a fast forward loop 
Bodies grabbing gifts.
           ----
Window wonderland
Victorian heartstrings tugged
Fake heartwarming snow.
           ---- 
Shoppers go shuffling
Monkey arms, wilting flowers
Trying to keep faith.
            ----
Keep cool in the queue
Angels may be serving you
Waiting for their wings.
             ----
Try to stay civil
If bells, baubles and Buble
Are not quite your thing.

  1. You captured the frenzy! The "Fake heartwarming snow" made me laugh. Makes me want to retreat to a nice view of a real winter wonderland and sip something warm.

  2. You captured the craziness of shopping malls ~

    Maybe best to avoid last minute shopping ~

    Wishing you Merry Christmas ~
