Haiku winter

The Brave Rose

Sometimes, when it snows

I think about the brave rose

buried half alive.

Hope deferred makes the heart sick, but a longing fulfilled is a tree of life.

The Meeting

Just out for a walk.

What good would I have to say

if God stopped to chat?

The Lord would speak to Moses face to face, as one speaks to a friend.

if God made today

then I can find joy in it

gladness with the sunrise

This is the day the Lord has made. Let us rejoice and be glad in it.

Man’s Best Friend

Our tenacious terrier mix, Sami. B- 2007 D- 12/30/21

She was just a stray.

But her spirit stole our hearts.

Good bye, Sami Jo.

Blessed are they that mourn: for they shall be comforted.

One almost winter

I heard the lonely trees say,

“Sweet snow is like spring.”

He who seeks good finds goodwill, but evil comes to him who searches for it.

the water, like glass,

reflecting a well spent day

empty canoe waits

He has made everything beautiful in its time.

a crowd of humans

swimming by like hooked mouth fish

who will reel them in?

Enter through the narrow gate. For wide is the gate and broad is the road that leads to destruction, and many enter through it. But small is the gate and narrow the road that leads to life, and only a few find it.

Jesus, Matthew 7:13-14 (NIV)
