Here is another offering of ‘Haiku’ poems to meditate upon.
“Posies of words tied by a chord of
seventeen syllables – Haiku”
Posy in the dictionary is a ‘love token’ – such as a small bunch of flowers tied by a ribbon.
I admit that some of my ‘Haikus’ are more elaborate, but I want to challenge the reader to give attention and time to meditation
1.Heb 13 v 8:
“Lord Jesus Christ is the same yesterday and today and forever”
2. Ps 104 v 24:
“O Lord, how marvellous are thy works; in wisdom hast thou made them all…”
3. “Come to me all you who are heavy laden and I will give you rest”
4. Saint Silouan of Mount Athos:
“Blessed be the soul that loves her brother for our brother is our life”
5. Last line of a Quaker poem by Matt Harvey:
“A light, however dimmed, shines on something of God in everyone”
6. Would you Adam ‘n Eve it? Crossing the surgery waiting room was it a senile or Holy Spirit impulse that I asked the lady sitting close by the Way Out?:
“Has anyone ever told you that you like look like Vera Lynn?” “Oh, yes”!
7. One of Christine’s:
“Morning pigeons swirling overhead – wings glinting in autumn sunshine”
8. “How are you this morning, Martin?” “Lost in wonder, love and praise.”
9. From ‘Landmarks’ by Roger Macfarlane:
“For language does not register experience – it produces it”
“Language carries a formative as well as informative impulse”
