Haiku moments can happen in church.

hands raised eyes closed
I hear their voices-
Jesus is here

 
 

If you are a poet, and you have never read the book of Psalms in the Bible, I suggest you take a look.  It is amazing, the length and breadth of the poetry there.  You will not be disappointed.  The book of Solomon is also a good place to look, if you ever had any doubt that God is a poet, or a romantic being.

It surprises me when people think that God does not have a sense of humor.  God created us, He gave US our sense of humor, our sense of irony, as well as other senses like our sense of sorrow, joy and sexuality.  He created our bodies the way he wanted them to be.  He designed us, so the way our hormones and nerves work throughout our bodies are all correct.  God wants you to laugh and find pleasure in life.

 
PS I do realize the above poem is senryu, but you can find all kinds of poetic moments, and inspiration in a church atmosphere.

You can find the Bible online in various places on the web, and you can find the Bible in several languages in bookstores all over the world.
