My Haibun and Haiku or Senyru below:

 
Most Sashay through life without giving little thought to the end.
Time, also known as the world; more than breath, less than an illusion.
God’s design is all in all. We desire yet wonder what we yearn.

Purpose of life be
Happy in eternity
Know Love and Serve God

Footsteps
Ask, and it shall be given you:
seek, and you shall find:
knock, and it shall be opened to you.”

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

Musing!
Craving to pen
scribble or compose, yet
troubled, melancholy am I
but why?
Sun steep in the sky — rays falling
God high up — grace dipping;
there I did it!
The end.
