I find the haiku format constraining. I'm sure it's good practice for me to write them, but I can never do what I want. I might rewrite this as a single poem at some point, without the haiku constraint.

laughing children with
spellbound anticipation,
longing for the day

Santa's reindeer prance
in their imagination,
waiting for the day

cluttered floors strewn with
gift tags, shredded paper and
treasures of the day


tired children sleep;
peaceful and contented rest,
dreaming of the day
