Becky’s Haiku: Sweet and Scent

Autumn leaves fall: red,

Orange, and lemon-yellow tint

Emitting sweet scent.

I have attempted a new haiku challenge from Ronovan Writes blog using the words “sweet” and “scent”. This is often an enjoyable challenge for those who like writing short poem or like word puzzles and challenges.  If you like word challenges and haiku’s, then I invite you to also accept Ronovan’s latest challenge at this link and have fun: https://ronovanwrites.wordpress.com/category/haiku-prompt-challenge/

The Narrow Bridge

052

Crossing the narrow

Bridge, I wondered what new place

Lay over the ridge.

Perhaps a meadow

Of flowers or a stream filled

With rippling water.

Or perhaps a new

Mountain to climb and reach its’

Peak to touch the sky.

Sometimes a problem

needing a solution and

I must trust in him.

Sometimes it is pain

And grief when sad news reaches

Me; must still believe.

In life I’ve learned each

day is a journey to lean

on Jesus only.

Letting him lead the

Way through the trials and

Triumphs each new day.

He continues to be

My Savior, Lord and true friend

For eternity.

So as I cross a

New bridge I’ll lean on him to

Reach that distant ridge.

Becky’s Haiku: The Lord Leads Me

The Lord always leads

Me even though I don’t see

His hand holding me.

He does forever

Stay in my heart this moment.

This hour and all day.

Teaching and even

Guiding me in his love while

Sitting high above.

In heaven over

The clouds and the rain reaching

With his outstretched hand.

He holds on never

Letting go while I rest or

Walk this road alone.

Raining sunshine to

Brighten my way so I know

This day he has made.

Becky’s Haiku: Sugar for the Soul

038

Angelic singing,

Like flowers blooming, sweetens

My innermost soul.

Becky’s Haiku: Time Journey

At the Pier

As time journeys through

Each year, I grow in lasting

Hope instead of fear.

I gaze to the sky

Lovely lights make it dazzle

Raining down from high

Although a bit late for the weekly challenge, my cousin Kathy just attempted another haiku challenge from Ronovan Writes blog using the words “sky” and “dazzle”.

Birth of summer brings

Good cheer as warmer days and

Late sunsets are here.
