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

    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
