This poem for Poetry Pantry at Poet’s United was written in the heart of winter. The ballerina in these haiku awaits the opening of spring’s curtain.
I am so grateful to Poet’s United for the interview about the poetry book for the orphans of Ebola in Liberia and to Kristjaan at Carpe Diem Haiku Kai. If you are unfamiliar with these two poetry communities, please check them out.
“Not I, nor anyone else can travel that road for you. You must travel it by yourself. It is not far. It is within reach. Perhaps you have been on it since you were born, and did not know.” – Walt Whitman
Welcome to the page of a burning heart! A repentant prodigal son now returns to seek the embrace of our Heavenly Father. Here a heart stricken with a desire to lift up God, feels a great need to know our Savior Jesus Christ, These writings are to share with children, wife, and those who would care, what the Spirit whispers on how to take our relationship with the Lord to a higher and more intimate level. Pray that we can all learn to love God more and come closer to Him each and every day!
