I don’t think I’ve yet mentioned in this blog my favorite place in Houston: the Japanese Garden at Hermann Park. This is my happy place — where I can go to soak in God’s beauty in the middle of the busyness of a large city, where I can write, remembering who God is and who He has made me to be.
Call me weird, but when I’m at the Japanese Garden, I like to write Japanese haiku. For anyone who doesn’t know, haiku are short, three-line poems with a 5-7-5 syllable scheme. They’re so simple that anyone can write them. Here are my latest creations:
Welcoming grasp from chaos
Listen to one voice.
Hear whispers among chaos
Salve to weary soul.
