Haibun: Unity

Unity doesn’t mean we’re all the same.
Unity means acceptance and integrity.
Unity means honesty and truth.

We are not the same
We are sharing this same realm
We can get along

Haibun: Truth and Belief

I grew up with your image.
Now they say you don’t exist.
I walked in your footsteps,
it was all I needed.
I read your words
and they spoke to me
across centuries of time –
as if I was there.

Are you a figment?
Faith covers my ignorance
You speak to me still
