Grace Is. . .

Standard

. . . being a poor peasant girl,

discovering the child of God born in me!

A Christmas Song

Thank you, Brian, for the mention! Let us remember to pray those who currently suffer for doing good.

Haiku Grace Journey

Standard

The Fall

Heart falls–glass vase. . . down
Droplets and shards splay with force
Dreams, with them, splatter.

imageThe Ache

Heart aches–lost in gloom
Dull and flat to spite the sun
Hopes, defied and slain.

imageThe Hardening

Heart hardens–dark shroud
Surrounds, squeezes, tender shoot
Shriveled, left to die.
image
The Gasp
Heart gasps–reflexive,
Violently as from sleep
Final thrust for life.
image
 The Cry
Heart cries–help me, please–
Sobs deeply heaving, need dire;
Light enters, here, now.
image
The Nurturing
Heart heals–sunrise warms,
Kissing snowdrops, melt to tears
warming buds unfurl.
image
The Restoration
Heart rejoices–Grace is!
Joy and life fill broken heart
Carry on to love.

DPchallenge this week, to write five Haiku (or more) about anything. I choose to write this series, a journey of grace.

Grace Is. . .

Standard

girl cries

. . .Crying all the way home from school

with a sealed note from the teacher for your parents to sign,

then finding out she reported a good thing you did that day

instead of the bad.

girl happy mom

Grace Is. . .

. . . finding a long lost love whom you had hurt

and learning (s)he forgave you a long time ago.
