perpetuum mobile

A haiku on “perpetual motion” for Carpe Diem Haiku Kai reprise…

 

ocean breaks in waves

seagull sentinels keep watch

foam washes up crab

what wondrous love!

 

greek word “agape”

God’s unconditional love

reaches for rebels

 

he humbly disrobed

to wash Judas’ dirty feet

king assumed servant role

 

he lay down own life

to pay ransom for captives

sweat pressed in garden

 

Jesus’ sacrifice

blood shed on altar for sin

perfect Lamb of God

 

remembering him

my first love, true love, best love

sing with gratitude

haloed moisture

 

round porthole window

hazy, lazy, crazy moon

holds back rain’s curtain

tea still not hotIMG_3469

patience is needed key

sweet glee

fuchsia snow

Inspired by post at CDHK on “potted plant” meme….

 

plant on windowsill

cyclamen blooms in bucket

sings promise of spring

sunrise/sunset shine

beauty at day’s raw edges

colors soothing balm

life’s pilgrimage

 

weary traveler

lift eyes to refresh long view

walk the narrow way

 

the-way

Road to Santiago – image from CDHK

leave it all behind

carpe-diem-january-2017

 

hiking boots and stick

take bold step, do not look back

leave it all behind

*  *  *

all want happy life!

but not every road leads home

pilgrims will seek truth

consider Jesus, the Way

relation, not religion

 


January meme at Carpe Diem Haiku Kai is the “Road to Santiago”.

step into unknown

with trusting hope for each day

as new year begins

imprisoned in glass

water still trickles beneath

brittle icicles
