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!
