NAILS – An Acrostic

March 31, 2015

Never had a tree touched my heart.

Acorns, bark, leaves to rake.

It was so ordinary, almost invisible.

Lent’s reminder of my Savior’s love – His blood.

Somehow the tree isn’t just a tree anymore.

A glove, a pitcher

sitting beside me empty

cannot satisfy

Spring giggles excitedly

winter’s slow retreat

The birds sing sweetly

while nearby dogs are barking.

Neither seem threatened . .

Fine feathered wisdom . . .

showing such abundant grace

I must learn their song!

The gleaming sunrays

just like silly little elves

scamper in the breeze!

Sunshine woke me up

but soon darkness covered it;

My hope is not lost!

Billie Wilson is the editor for the Haiku Registry at The Haiku Foundation.  We updated my poet page there this week.  I began reading through the registry again – a few pages at a time.

Please see Apply to Be Listed if you wish more information.

The Haiku Registry is a wonderful resource.

Why do we look down on the weak? Taking ownership of my weakness is one of the greatest gifts I can give myself since the admission opens the door to His strength in me! – from Thoughts Over Morning Coffee byMartha L Shaw
