Christian Haikus

Lately, I’ve been challenging myself to write my own Psalms and have published two on Journey Thoughts. I hope to write more. I belong to a few Facebook Christian writing groups and one in particular focuses on writing poetry. (Christian Poets & Writers) I have written poetry, have taught junior high poetry, but I haven’t written a lot of Christian poetry.

In 2017 Faithful Bloggers asked for submissions towards a group writing project, and I was one of the contributors. A Haiku is a Japanese poem of seventeen syllables, in three lines of five, seven, and five, traditionally evoking images of the natural world. The following Haikus were my submissions. There is a free downloadable PDF on the Faithful Bloggers site, but I also include it here, so you may enjoy some of the other Haikus that were submitted by a group of talented Christian writers and poets.

Undaunted I rise
From within the tomb of woe
Risen once for all!
He lived, breathed, and walked
Amongst us; the Perfect Lamb
Of God, our Saviour.
I once was lost but
Now I'm found alive in Christ
Redeemed forever.
Easter lilies bloom
Triumphantly rejoicing
Near the empty tomb.
I wept in despair
Trapped in sin, until His love
Claimed me for His own!
The Three Crosses stood
Testament to Golgotha's
Pain but Christ's Triumph.
The mountains declare
His Glory, His Majesty
Beyond any words.
Darkness has no hold
When Light overpowers it.
Rejoice in the Son!
