your journey

August 28, 2010

Who will define love
That is a question I raised
In seeking I found
Sixty-eight years of living 
Forty-nine years of seeking
Engaging my mind to know truth
Great discoveries
The journey is yours~
You get to decide the way
The path you will take
You will have to cut through lies
Seek wise counsel and listen
Test the things you are being taught
On the grid of love
The path I am on
Has led to surprising joy
Deep lasting friendships
A Jack Daniel’s truck
Advertising on the side
“What matters most is the stuff
That’s on the inside”
A great truth being abused
Gives relief but no healing
My friend has cancer
What are the choices he has
Another has lost his job
Another his child
Who can address these issues
Despair sits at the bottom
This is my calling
Helping with life obstacles
I sit in silence
Searching to give a response
Trying to bring the presence of love

  1. Yeah I think you know you found what you thought I needed…and you were right..and now, I found someone who wants to learn what you already know as well..

  2. Oh , sorry I should have expounded… after reading at least a years worth of you Haiku, I think you have founded perfection in this one…without a doubt…and a mentor I believe you could be to the one of whom I relay this shout…Aydee’s forum…

    Hi Terry (if I may call you by your first name), I was given the link to your blog by Paul Willis. I have been hearing about haiku recently and googled it to find out what it was. I tried 3 short poems using the method, but wasn’t happy with how restrictive it was and also with the counting of syllables where I have usually just gone with the beat. However, after reading some of your work here, I realise that you have mastered the form and appear to ‘break the rules’ of the 3 line 5-7-5 syllables and I really love what you have done! Are there other rules of which I am unaware? Thank you for your help, in anticipation, Denise
