A Haiku - Forgiveness

Updated on January 1, 2016

A Haiku - Forgiveness

What must I do now?

Wrong steps along life's journey,

Marks left on my path.

Help me visualize

Thy snowstorm of forgiveness,


Wrongs done their once,

No matter so large or small,

Weighted down my soul.

True Judge, mercy please.

Their burdens are too heavy.

I would move on now.

I cling to the sound

of a Sacred Heart beating

for me, and for all.


Matthew 18:17-22

      aviannovice - I just realized that I had written what now are the final three lines, as a one sentence caption for the heart photo! So I moved them to become the final haiku and left the heart photo caption-less.

      Thanks for commenting. Your comment brought me back here and to that realization! I fear I am beginning to think in haiku, even when I write a sentence!
