I have recently begun writing Haiku poems as a form of meditation, focusing on the essence of a thought, and shaping words around it using the Haiku structure of 5-7-5.

I would like to use this thread to share my poems.....hopefully encouraging others to share their own inspirations.:)

Truth

Truth roars like thunder
When breaking free from its cage...
A matrix of lies

God Bless

Meditation

Silence surrounds me
When serenity arrives
With its gentle touch

Enter My presence

Be still....know that I Am God

Communion will come

Thank you Victor, :)

The structure of the standard Haiku poem is written in 3 lines with a total of 17 syllables, 5 syllables in the first line, 7 in the second line, and 5 in the third line. I like the idea of having a limited structure with which to express the essence of a thought.

God Bless

God feels like morning

As warm rays of sunshine

Are caressing my skin

Capture each moment....

We are given but a few

To journey through life

Making once a sound

Returning back home again

Give all today, for....

If tomorrow never comes

It's left un-given
