Considering Simple Things (Haiku)


Considering Simple Things

 

So we’re into the busy Christmas season. The season of hustle and bustle. The season of spending and much consumerism. The above poem is just a little reminder to take a step back from it all and notice the simple things in nature, wonder and ordinary miracles.

How does the Christmas season make you feel? Do you find it tiring and exhausting? Do you enjoy time with friends and family? Do you get depressed? Many people do at this time of the year.

Shine – (Haiku)


Girl Shine Haiku

The light of the world

Who gave all for those He loved

Shines brightly in me


This is my first whimsy girl mixed media piece. In all honesty, I loved it before I added the words and started playing with it more. The hair kind of makes her head look wide now, and before it didn’t. Just goes to show that the expression “Keep it simple, stupid” has credit.

Resting Art – Haiku


Stitched Panorama

Vast divine artist

I rest between your shoulders

Peaceful and secure

Do you ever think of yourself as a work of art? An intricate and beloved work of art? I do.

It’s very freeing for me, knowing that I am one-of-a-kind, unique and carefully thought out and crafted. My life has an amazing purpose and I have been given the privilege to create art together with the greatest artist of all. Wow.

I’m also overwhelmed by the peaceful security I find resting between the shoulders of He who made me. Not only was I created a masterpiece, but also for intimate relationship with Him.

Do you think you’re a piece of art, a one-of-a-kind, unique and individual? How does that make you feel?

A Human Being – Haiku


Human Being.jpg

A human being
Poetry in the making
Each word penned with thought

A human being
Fine musical orchestra
The conductor leads

A human being
Not complicated machine
Spirit, soul, body

Have you ever thought about what it means to be a human being? Considered the differences there are between humans and other creatures? Do you think we’re special in some way? Just a bit of food for thought as we go into our weekend.

This is my first Haiku poem.  I’m new to writing, especially poetry.  I know I’m not that seasoned yet, but I’m really wanting to branch out and grow.  I would appreciate any feedback or advice that you may have for me :-). So many of you are such eloquent poets and writers, and I admire the beauty that I read in your work.  Your words to me will not be taken lightly.
