Nice Senryu

everyone wants an
honest answer from us
as long as it’s nice

So this is not really haiku, and I almost erased it except that people on Twitter liked it so much. This may be senryu, but I think it’s a stretch. Read the definition for senryu on my What is Haiku? page and tell me what you think in the comments on this post.



People who are rude to waiters.

A person who is nice to you but rude to the waiter, is not a nice person.  -Unknown



For all my friends out there who have waited tables.

We always tip our waiter, even if they are not attentive. I know how hard that job is, and that they probably are also in college, or have a kid, or other jobs.

Acrostic Friday #7

how Christ bridged the old and new testaments

This is another geat page from my Bible.











This is the last Acrostic Friday, but make sure to come back! I will have a formal poem next Friday.

After this 30 Day Challenge is over I am going to begin a new series on Wednesdays.

I really thought about the words I choose for this poem. I thought about them carefully, consulting the dictionary and thesaurus. “Nice” may seem like a common word and it’s not a ‘punchy’ word to end on- but I think it was important that I used it. Because that is what the majority of our rules, or laws, boil down to as a Christian.

Love is what Christianity is about, but there is no L in Christian.

Is there a word up there that you don’t think belongs?

Is there a word that you think would have fit better?
