If you’ve read more than one post on my blog you’ve probably noticed that I tend to find a spiritual application for what is happening around me. You might be expecting that now, in fact.
Not this time.
Recently I’ve posted haiku poetry on Twitter, tagging it #HaikuFriday. Some come from what I see out the window, and some from a glance at my desk, but none have an overt spiritual connection. So this time I am asking you to make a connection from one or more of these poems to something spiritual. It might be a passage of Scripture, or an answer to prayer, or an aspect of your relationship with God; it’s up to you. I’m looking forward to reading your thoughts in the comments.
And please don’t feel you aren’t up to the task. There are no wrong answers because I have no answers for what these poems mean in my own life, let alone in yours. But if there is any meaning in them for you, please let me know.
Looking out over
Tree-topped streets, my sight gives way
To peaceful wonder
The train whistled, shrill
And long as it passed away
Leaving me behind
I held but one key
Yet saw many doors, then thought:
I can open one
