I knew war and was in disarray
I was turmoil itself and in constant battle
Too busy to breathe, too distracted to pray
Too easy to lead astray like cattle
Too unsettled to stay in one place
Too deaf to listen, too proud to kneel
But then I knelt, bowed my heart, lowered my face
And was lifted to share in a meal
I knew war, but peace entered this space
I had known the word but had not understood
Peace is busier than war
But a business that is lively, wholesome, and good
Shaking me unto my core
By this I know your presence
By this I seek your essence

God bless,

Clarity Haiku

Unseen therefore dark
Yet illuminating all
On a clear night stroll

God bless,

At Least it's Fun to Say

A fletcher and a hunter
A tanner and a punter
A sailor with his gunter
Mowing down the lawn
Cutting blades with blades
Starting from the dawn
Until they all get blunter
In the evening shades
Then they all are gone

God bless,

I sit and wait to know, unwary
Of ordinary and extraordinary
Of colors, lights and joyful sounds
Abounds and from death unbounds

God bless,

Flow of Death

Flow of death to change the fate
Of all mankind, don't hesitate
To be reborn, to repent and live
All life, all you have, and more to give

God bless,
Joshua Fahey
