A Haiku - Found
When in need, there is a need to pray.
Two visions in answer to prayers...
The leaves were fallen.
Raked in a pile, children played.
The gold ring was lost.
In prayer I saw it.
“Come children. We’ll find my ring.”
There it was waiting.
Some days later on,
The car keys were lost… missing.
The meeting was soon.
“That’s okay, Dad. Pray!”
The faith of a child had grown.
Faith justified then.
As with the piled leaves,
So with the bag of clothing.
A hand reached the keys.
I taught the children.
The lesson learned…they taught me.
Keys, smiles, meeting on.
