Gift . Prays . Hope . Grace . Challenge . Love

Haiku by Lloyd Duong
(Haiku is Japanese form of poetry
with simplicity in style and complexity in thought)

Gift
Life nested in love
Death met the great journey
Mother’s gift embraced

Prays
immense ocean
prays quell the cold and dense fog
sail into unknown

Hope
desert of water
ocean of sun, crushing thirst
hope thrusts dreams forward

Grace
Buddha lived enlightened
Jesus died for salvation
Heaven’s grace blossomed

Challenge
The  heart’s sincere verses
steered by diverse tenets
challenge  friends’ wisdom

Love
One looked.  One frozen
the whole universe stood still
Love, secret feeling

Vietnam
War.  War.  Still fight war!
War’s hatreds imprison minds
Kind love shall free all
