1/12/20 First of December

Twenty four days to go 

Then it's Christmas Day 


2/12/20 Morning backoned

It was December second

Lockdown was over


3/12/20 The newspapers said 

There's a vaccine on the way 

In time for Christmas


4/12/20 December the fourth

Howmany days of Advent

Anoter twenty more


5/12/20 Yesterday we had

Snow, rain, today's clear but 

It's still bloody cold


6/12/20 Sixth of December 

Second Sunday of Advent

There’s two more to go


7/12/20 From the loft it came

Slowly it grew, the lights went on

Christmas tree looks nice


8/12/20 History being made

Vaccinations start today

Rolling out begins          


9/12/20 Headline news today

Who got the jab yesterday

The first of many


10/12/20 The year gets older

The weather gets much colder

Cold enough for snow


11/12/20 The need continues

We get it  where it’s needed

The giving can’t stop


12/12/20 Another weekend

Get what I need for today

Christmas shopping waits


13/12/20 Advent third Sunday

Long journey to Bethlehem

Still continuing


14/12/20 Yesterday it was

Gaudete Sunday, a time

To rejoice, rejoice


15/12/20 Another day dawns

End of pandemic distant

Christmas gets nearer


16/12/20 Morning rain like a

Veil of tears, is it for the

Coming holy birth


17/12/20 Our Advent journey

Getting shorter, from today

A week to Christmas

Christmas nearer, another

Advent Haiku done

Still people in need of help

The giving can’t stop

Dedicated to Mary

Who will bear Jesus

So people won’ go with out

Some Christmas cheer


22.12.20 New strain of virus

And on our Advent journey

Britain stands alone


23.12.20 Day after Solstice

The day before Advent ends

Journey almost done


24.12.20 Christmas Eve, time to 

celebrate the holy birth 

Hope is born again
