Grace in Haiku


“It’s my pleasure to bring a new episode of Haiku Shuukan. Several weeks ago, we started with Joan Halifax’s G.R.A.C.E and this week it’s about the “A” in G.R.A.C.E. The “A” stands for Attaining to Self Other. ”

Linked to Carpe Diem Haiku Shuukan:
Attaining to Self-Other:

“Sense without judgment. This is an active process of inquiry, first involving yourself, then the other person. Open a space in which the encounter can unfold, in which you are present for whatever may arise, in yourself and in the other person.”

What to do with this idea in a haiku? I don’t really know, but I have to give it a try:

this spring will be the first
to bloom for Buddha

Seek and ye shall find

spring waters cleanse winter hearts

eyes open to Grace

Thanks to Kristjaan Panneman for a refreshing prompt from Carpe Diem

Thank you for visiting Moondustwriter. One of the many exciting things I've had the honor of doing is writing and publishing in multiple genres (including education) in E. African for E. Africa. As a writer, it is a thrill to write for children (on all continents) who want to learn. I've been part of the blogging community for more than 13 years. Some old timers may remember the award winning (2011 Twitter Shorty ) blog community - One Stop Poetry. I was the co-producer of that fast growing blog community. I am a published writer, poet, artist and photographer. I have written, as well as edited, for periodicals, radio, blogs and fellow writers. There are many facets to this moon - my joy is in meeting you!

  1. “Seek and ye shall find” was written on a cover of a book my eldest brother owned, one day he showed me the words and asked, ‘Do you understand what it means?”
    I was eight I think I confidently told him it means : look for it and you will find it. He had a broad smile on his face, he didn’t expect me to understand. 🙂

  2. I appreciate all water – while I would not swim in the muddy creek that borders my backyard I am sure all the animals rejoice that it is there 🙂

    Thanks for stopping by. Children are indeed refreshment for the soul – cheers, Jules.

Faith & Entropy

Gud skaper noko nytt ved sitt Ord og sin Ande, vi kan ta imot det i tru og få oppleve at han gjer sitt verk med oss. Hans skaparkraft verkar konstuktivt i våre liv og skaper noko som er verdifullt for oss. Naturkreftene verkar nedebrytande, i fylgje entropilova, men Gud er Ånd og det som er født av hans Ande består. Jesu frelsesverk er fullbrakt og fullkome. Han er den siste Adam, som er ifrå himmelen og som for oss har vorte ei livgjevande ånd. Han gjev oss den Heilage Ande frå himmelen av berre nåde. Han gjev oss det evige livet.
