curious fellow

wonders at human whistling

do you have birdseed?

sun burns away fog

coaxes spring’s newly green grass

sparrows twitter joy

A fresh installment for Carpe Diem’s retreat: joy of light

lenten days lengthen

light increases by minutes

joy of spring coming

open tightly closed windows

inviting fresh clean breeze in!

VIII.

illumination

darkness does not understand

light of world shines

 

IX.

pure light shines boldly

on both good and evil thoughts

exposing our hearts

 

X.

light of truth brings joy

but guilty hide in darkness

cling to familiar

 

 

come, be brilliant

O little town…


 

“You will go out in joy and be led forth in peace;
the mountains and hills will burst into song before you,
and all the trees of the field will clap their hands.” –Isaiah 55:12

 

Everyone lives in a little town

obscure village, speck in space

lost in universe we are but dust

 

Creator sees, our father knows

us too intimately, enters a virgin

(god in a womb)  angels sing glory!

 

He came and is coming still to

every little town, knocks at door

will you let great JOY move… inn?

advent reading (3)

 

Light a candle on this 3rd Sunday of Advent

We watch with eyes wide open.

What does a shepherd know of Joy?

Exiles follow Lord

Until kingdom restored

All: So Christ is our Advent of JOY!

spiritual fine tuning

 

“Happiness is when what you think, what you say, and what you do are in harmony.”

                                        (Mahatma Ghandi)

 

let us love, brothers

find our unity with joy

harmony in Christ

 

repent, believe, become real

let soul revival begin…

 


Connecting with Carpe Diem Haiku Kai’s prompt today…many directions you could go with the theme of happiness!

winter’s secret joy

expecting new grandchildren

love’s art develops

 

every snowflake is unique

each design original

 


Linking with other haiku poets at Carpe Diem Haiku Kai today.

time passages

Linking to Carpe Diem’s time glass challengedancing leaves

leaves let go of fear

fall free, float on air, swirl down

celebrate changes.

letting go self-consciousness,

we can twirl life’s dance with joy!
