Thin Haiku

crawling to the edge
like a squirrel about to jump
trusting thin branches

Tanka Tuesday | Undertow

Undertow

he smiles and says
we’ll make it work, don’t worry
but I feel the current
the hidden one underneath
he swims in the undertow

 

Here is your poem for Tanka Tuesday. I wrote this a long time ago. I wrote a lot of tanka last year and I’m excited to be sharing it with you.

For now we see through a glass darkly,

yellow leaf

on a black-topped road

easy to see

 

God Moves

God moves but sometimes

We do not see

The branch sways

But there’s no color in the wind

Grass moves across the land

But we see no hand

Waves billow and swell

For seemingly no reason

The pieces fall into place

God has given us grace

Sometimes its hard to see what God is doing, what His plans are, or even who He is.  But one day we shall all be given full knowledge.  When Eve and Adam ate the apple, they gained knowledge, but not FULL knowledge.

1 Corinthians 13:12 For now we see through a glass, darkly; but then face to face: now I know in part; but then shall I know even as also I am known. (KJV)
