Haikus

Writing Haikus can be a daily  spiritual practice. Here are some of the Haiku’s that were written at the Sunday morning service on January, 31, 2021

We had three minutes to write a Haiku about the weather or what was out your window.

Enjoy.

–Thea Shapiro, DRE

Crystal blue sky
Crisp air and bright light
A hope of Spring to come
-Diana Bourgeois

Stillness holds the cold
Brittle branches wait do not break
Roots hope underground
-Karin Fuog

Ice forms on windows
staying inside is okay
I know spring will come!
Nancy Mulvey

A sudden red flash
cardinal at my feeder
the morning’s blessing
-Nancy Mulvey

Sunlight over all
the ground still hides in shadows
I check the forecast
-David Grober

Snow on PA fields
covers the grass in whiteness
Enough for my skis
-Susan Stott

Yellow Tulips Grow
And then droop on my table
bringing in the sun
-Susan Stott

My soul is floating
Out the door, across the street
My feet remain warm.
-George Dudley

crisp, blue
air, water, animal and plant
Mother Earth
-Chas Bicking

Familiar faces online
Voices rising and falling
Comfort comes
-Ellen Geiger

Balance in change. The grace of constancy.
White, trees, snow, barren landscape.
Profusion of emptiness, remembrance of heartache.
Pat Dell-Ross

Barren trees, reaching,
Stretching towards a bright sky
Snow covers the ground
-Shay Bradham

Sunshine bouncing on white sparkly snow.
Not a drop of wind moving, thus keeping the tree branches still.
What a glorious day for a walk and fire pit.
-Karen Gale

Stark landscape so white
cold, frozen, snow- birds fly by
each one with a song
-Thea Shapiro
