Unbalanced #devotion #poetry

 

I stand alone

tilting in the wind

needing no one

balance only sand

*

I stand alone

cold feathers is my plight

I fall like a stone

rejected in my flight

*

no longer alone

warmer with you there

you calm my inner groan

life together gladly bear

2 seagulls

 

 

 

No need to stand off balance and alone.The Bible encourages  companions who stand firm and keep us from being foolish.

“He who walks with wise men will be wise, But the companion of fools will suffer harm.”

~Proverbs 13:20

“A man of too many friends comes to ruin,
But there is a [friend who sticks closer than a brother.”

~Proverbs 18:24

 

“Two are better than one because they have a good return for their labor. For if either of them falls, the one will lift up his companion. But woe to the one who falls when there is not another to lift him up. Furthermore, if two lie down together they keep warm, but how can one be warm alone?”

~Ecclesiastes 4:9-12

No one travels
Along this way but I,
This autumn evening.

Fawn #haiku

fawn

I came home this evening gasping in awe

so fresh are the white speckles on the fawn

She looks so calm with those big eyes

Her neck twists as she watches her resting twin

bending her legs she lays on the forest floor

Mothers never leave them when they are this young

the tears caress my eyelids

tomorrow they awaken to tomorrow’s challenge

tonite they rest under nature’s canopy

*

so new to the world

orphans in forest sanctuary

foraging alone

 

The prompt at Carep Diem Haiku Kai is Fawn.
