My sojourn day by day, as time goes by, noticing that black is white and white, is now black. Life is altered, modified, and turned from winter to spring in lightning speed. Exchange can be good but just when I think I heard it all, the next day I am blown away by another adverse enlightenment.
My only reaction is to disregard, resist and dare to say NO!

The devil can cheer
near our habits, since he is
not inside our will!

 

YET!

 

My Haiku above a rephrase of Padre Pio’s quote below:

“healthy sign if the devil shouts and roars around your conscience since this shows that he is not inside your will.”
― Padre Pio

  1. Well done! You Haiku at the end could be a senryu, but it’s up to you. In Haibun, the Haiku at the end should allude to the theme of your prose, which it does. I think you expressed your feelings well and your Haiku reflected that with a humorous twist. ❤ WOO HOO! ❤
