Gift of Time

#Haiku Happenings #2: Dwight Roth’s latest #tankaprose for my current #haikai challenge!

Roth Poetry


One Christmas, several years ago, we decided that instead of buying Christmas gifts for each other we would draw names and each of us would make our gift. My son drew my name and made this original clock for me. As we enter the new year, perhaps we should think how we can make this thought true not just for dad, but for all of our family members, especially for those who are confined and can no longer get out and about.  The greatest gift of love you can give to them is your time.

Give the gift of time

A most precious gift of love

Your New Year’s Blessing


Those whose lives are too  busy

Will miss their special reward

This was written for Frank Tassone’s Haikai challenge…. The prompt was to write a poem using the word New Years in .
