One thought on “A haiku based on Luke 24

  1. Thanks, Matt. Your post has inspired me! Since it is now the “Christian calendar” season of Lent for those who wish to make it part of their spiritual practice, various Lent-laden literature is flooding my Inbox, vying for my meditational attention… a kind of oxymoronic situation… trying to quieten myself within, to listen for the still small voice which would hopefully, gently convict, challenge and transform me in the deep places of my heart… whilst the cacophanous choir from the email list silently shouts “Pick ME! I’m the lesson with more. You need to engage with MY wisdom today i.e. preferably right now!”

    Had to make a choice
    Today your post won one through
    I’ve written Haiku!

    … as did another
    post that came through my inbox
    Isaiah 30:15

    (Isaiah 30:15 For thus the Lord GOD, the Holy One of Israel, has said, ‘In repentance and rest you will be saved, in quietness and trust is your strength.’)

    HAIKU for Lent

    I can choose to live
    When choice is too difficult
    Christ-death-life GIVEs strength

    I can choose to turn
    My life around and find rest
    Repentance BREEDs strength

    I can choose to love
    The Way showed me how it’s done
    Choosing Love Is strength
