Tradition + Haibun Poetry just for YOU!

My Haibun for dVerse

Once Upon Tradition, we discovered that Truth and Humility are very similar in the fact that humility, among other definitions, is acceptance of Truth. Without humility, we cannot win heaven. Because If humility is missing, PRIDE is present.
Just think, it is very straightforward! God can only create goodness, and the angels when created were untainted. However tradition explains, God who knows all things, foretold to His angels that He would also create a nature with a lower essence than His angels. God continued to educate the angels of His plan, but many of them objected to giving one particular woman her proper place. “I will not serve.” The idea that a mere woman would be so privileged, blessed and recognized as to carry God within her human body.

Luke chapter 1; verse 48 “All generations shall call me BLESSED.”

At that moment in time Pride was born into existence, many angels fell.
Pride originated; deception appeared. The fallen then showing Adam and Eve how pleasant Pride looks, Eve accepted the bait while exercising free will thus; giving a new twist on that phrase, “The right to choose.”

Freewill — right to choose
angels, devils, good, evil
humility, pride

Smile vs Smirk—Ragtag

Ragtag Daily Prompt / RDP

To smile is kind, meek, mild and reserved,
while a smirk is self, vain filled with pride.
A smirk delivers egotism —
The smile presents an invitation of delight!

But the meek shall inherit the land, and shall delight in abundance of peace.
[Psalms 36:11]

My First Attempt #Butterfly Cinquain

Thank you, Colleen Chesebro, on getting me hooked on the different types of poetry.

But first Tra La ♫ … A quote from the Bible about books, one book you will want your name entered into, no doubt about it!

“There shall not enter into it any thing defiled, or that worketh abomination or maketh a lie, but they that are written in the book of life of the Lamb.”
[Apocalypse (Revelation) 21:27]

“And if any man shall take away from the words of the book of this prophecy, God shall take away his part out of the book of life, and out of the holy city, and from these things that are written in this book.”
[Apocalypse (Revelation) 22:19]
