Resist hiding from your fear
Let it give you focus
As a long-time Star Wars fan, I thought it would be fun to create a couple of Star Wars themed haiku. Below is the first.
Dawn has not yet broke
Though the eastern sky brightens
This new winter’s day
Gaze upon the town
Centuries of memories
Under the fresh snow
Watching these clouds move through firs
Such grace filled motion
Out east of Bellingham, near the town of Deming, we journeyed to the Nooksack river to see eagles. Around twenty bald and golden eagles sat among the trees. Seagulls fought for the scraps.
Looking to the west
Lights flicker in the darkness
City filled with stars
So, why am I here?
Such a powerful question
This path to greatness
I want to grow, to become more, do important things, make a positive impact upon this place I love. That is what I mean by “greatness” . But that’s only a part. How I need to define my goal.
As Thich Naht Hahn said, “The path is the goal”. It’s a fluid, moving target, evolving as my soul grows. I find this beautiful.
A haiku at the end of this busy day. Family after church, this period where birthdays intersect with major holidays.
