Haibun: Blind

man and woman bind to each other

The middle man confuses,
removes us from reality,
the nature of the enemy.
The chaos of this world
mimics the frenzy of our minds,
the history buried deep,
the forgotten glory of the past
which we cannot see.

What really happened
Annihilation more than once
Save us from this fate

Haibun: A 2020 Vision

He took me up high into the clouds
to show the four corners of the earth.
As far as the eye could see,
the great extent of the cosmos –
the perfection of His design.
Then I knew this was no accident.
My destiny was written;
to be present to witness the coming change.

Waking up is birth
Vast vision lays out the truth
Glory eternal
