Free Haiku

autumn wind in leaves

pierces the skin moves the soul

the voice of God felt

breeze from heaven stirs within

dust takes flight and life renewed

whence this dust so thick does lie?

dirt of evil, sin, and death?

grime of haste lies thick on all

covers life lived without pause

voice of God foul dust does blow

open windows, send dust hence

uncover gifts, long unseen

discover life, long unlived

take dust, restore life

blest gust from heaven blow on

autumn’s leaves now fall

Not exactly a haiku or tanka, but something in between!

Written at the end of a silent retreat.
