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

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

The Supernatural in Haiku

Today I took the challenge RonovanWrites offers, the prompt words are two; Steam and Cover, immediately looking up the synonyms my Haiku was formed.  Synonym for “Steam” I used “Energy” …

His instructions follow:  Haiku is:
Four things to remember:

You have three lines of poetry.
17 total syllables, some say sounds, in the 5/7/5 pattern.
You normally tell two opposite images in the poem.
Lines one and two should read as a complete sentence and lines two and three should read as a complete sentence.
Notice the word normally. You can have the poem be about aspects of the same thing, but normally you look at it from to different ways.

My contribution to RonovanWrites challenge follows:

The Shroud of Turin
Covering Body of Christ
Energy unleashed

***

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

Knowing the end of the story

In keeping with the theme of my blog, this challenge does have a religious touch.

My post here is an acceptance of Colleen Chesebro Challenge Tanka Poetry; her challenge is to use the synonyms for the words “Happy and Morose” however as she suggested I took this week challenge a little further by mixing Tanka poetry in between a Haiku or hybrid of Haiku/Senryu. If you know whether it be Haiku or Senryu please comment below; explain why.  Honestly I am not sure.

Numerous synonyms will be underlined.

Illusion the snare
crooning of silly ditties
awash with merry!
Secretly indwells a low
clinging to a chimera.

How cold our world is.
No room at the inn; without
Him— Peace can’t enter.

Truth error can’t mix
the devil will have his day!
Knowing story end
delighted the blessed will be
melancholy will be free!
