Gift-giving can be so excessive during this season that the meaning of Christmas gets lost. Yet, a well-thought gift can be really, really special.

Take for example, this gift from my sister:


Desiree isn't a poet, knows very little about haiku except that I write it, yet she searched eBay to find a special haiku gift for me and came up with this 120 year old scroll from Japan! Her efforts made me feel all warm and fuzzy and loved.

Now, if anyone can translate this for me...?
