Can't Put the Pen Down…

The Now

Look in, look inside
Something hides behind the pain
Perhaps it is joy.

Stand up, stand up straight
Something new is beginning
That makes life worthwhile.

Step out, step away
Something is coming closer
Every moment.

Run, run to meet life
Embrace newness each morning
Your heart is beating.



(note:  try reading only the first lines of each haiku, then only the second, and, finally, only the third. The meanings reveal themselves differently this way) 🙂

    What. I did not know about reading the lines in a different order. This will make composing a choir piece to your text may more complex (in a good way)! Very, VERY neat!

  2. Oooh! Clever with the different ways to read.

  3. Wow! That as beautiful.. Especially, the other way.. Great work! 🙂
