Today’s forgiving journal is about a new look at love.
I thought I’d try something different today, and write some Haikus on my experience of forgiving. What I know is that when I forgive, I am doing an act of love. What I don’t know is how that loving works inside of me. What is love? I want to learn more about that, and give it to myself.
I also thought I could combine my Haikus with my blogger friend Dutchgoesthephoto’s challenge of the week, which is to take a photo with lines. I took this photo below. It reminds me of the Light that comes in over me as I rest – it may not come directly from where I think it would (the windows). I may need to look around at the lines on the wall.
Well, here I am looking around.
“Haiku” is a traditional form of Japanese poetry. Haiku poems consist of 3 lines. The first and last lines of a Haiku have 5 syllables and the middle line has 7 syllables. The lines rarely rhyme.
Here are my Haiku’s:
Windows of the Soul
Never give light where I want
It to be God knows
Why? Where is my love
This is such a mystery
There are no words Cry
Lines drawn on the Soul
Now I know where the love is
The map begins in me
And a quickie forgiving! I forgive myself for judging that how I do poetry is stupid and all wrong. I forgive myself for judging myself as a Hallmark card. I let it all go into the Light wherever I find it. I am grateful for having a new look at loving and for the simple smile on my face. That, my friends, is my experience of love right now. ❤
I love you.
