Failure, Resurrection and Haikus

Sorry I have not written in a while, I have been on retreat... again and I have hit the ground running. Crazy couple of days but here is my journal entry for today:

Another day lined with failures, self-destruction and sabotage [or what I like to call "the effects of original sin"]. The stuff of Legends... So motivation seems to be my issue. Father John says maybe I need to change the context or circumstances rather than the environment. "O men how long will your hearts be closed, will you love what is futile and seek what is false?" Psalm 4:3

[For some reason I felt the need to write poetry so I decided to write a haiku.]

Simple yet flawless,
Failures come and go like Lay's,
I can't just have one.

New days start with now.
Tomorrow's goals never start.
There is no later.

Staring at ashes
will not make a Phoenix rise...
Sweep new foundation.

When life's upside-down,
God's telling you, the soil, not
meant to stay in ground.

When butterflies fly
do they see caterpillar?
'Member where you're from...

Desecrated tombs
are only disrespectful
if you stay in them.

Atlas only shrugged
Prometheus brought us fire
Jesus brought me Hope.

I did not intend to write resurrection themed haikus but at least I am glad to write some poetry.

Pray well,
