Hurricane Haiku



cathedral's roof gone

a cross hangs upside down-

pews fill once again

    Same old story, yes! God is always there, even when we forget Him. And just getting back to His place is the right thing to do...Cheer up, Gwen! Powerful haiku! Love, Hanitra

    "Now this poem IS getting published OR won a contest...am I right? A large contest somewhere else? I am curious your age bc if you are a young poet and u are already writing this well,....watch out world, there's a new and upcoming poet on the beat! So thrilled for your recent successes AND for launching a very hip website..." You said this to me in June and I know it's late, but thanks for your kind comment, and sorry but I now only post poems on my site

    The faithful seem to find the will to appear under any difficult circumstances. I suppose, to be thankful for coming through that awful storm. We got the fringe and that was bad enough and I felt so sorry for those who suffered with such losses. Love the message Gwen.

    oh, my an upside down cross!! How fitting after that evil spirit rolled through. This is marvelous, Gwen. many of these single haiku are putting my series to shame. by the way, did you copy and paste my link on Joe namath? You gotta see that short ad he did for Hanes.
