haiku 262 by Melba Christie


A world of trials

No one wants to be guilty

Why not tell the truth

Make sure you ask the right question and get the right answers.

 

HAIKU – Prayer


The spirit, the truth

of silent prayer –

just the moon on the road.

-Kikusha-Ni

This poem says so much in such few words. I recently posted a video, “A Prayer For Us All” on my YouTube channel that focuses on prayer and meditation during this difficult time for so many. Silent prayer and stillness has never been more needed. I invite you to watch and please leave a prayer wish in the comments section. I plan to post many more uplifting videos so please subscribe as well.

I stopped watching the daily reports of the death tolls as a result of COVID-19. It simply saddened me too much. Prayer is needed more than ever. Prayer to me means voicing what is in your heart. It means that I am somehow in communion with other voices that are expressing the same needs, fears, and pain.

I thank God everyday for keeping my family and friends safe. I pray for sanity and peace across our nation. Prayers awaken us and helps us to be more aware no matter how painful it might be,

So, I want to thank my fellow bloggers for posting uplifting messages and providing such wonderful content. Be safe and God bless.

Haiku by Basho


When I looked under the hedge-

the little grass called shepard’s purse*

was flowering

Shepherd’s purse is used for heart and circulatory problems including mild heart failure, low blood pressure, and nervous heart complaints. It is also used for headache, vomiting blood, blood in the urine, diarrhea, and bladder infections.” – Google search
