Thoughts on making mistakes:

21 Dec

Sin has redemption

guilt has no place in heaven

all roses have thorns


wind in silence blows

ripples always seeking shore

Empty space has doors

    Yes, yes, to the thorns and to the doors–both poems full of grace and gratitude and forgiveness. Happy Holidays, ZQ.

    Very thought-provoking and existential…..’empty space has doors’ in particular has my mind doing some pretty bendy mental gymnastics 😉

    These are two very profound haiku… the roses and the empty space .. they work separately yet speak in unison.

    Yes, sin has redemption! We are all sinners….and there is not one of us who doesn’t need it. Merry Christmas to you, ZQ.

    Roses and thorns….taking the good with the bad. Nice one!

    Ah! The juxtapositions of life. The conciseness and efficacy of haiku never ceases to amaze me. Well done.

    ripples always seeking shore . . . I keep re-reading that line. It flows :-). I enjoyed both very much, but the second is really special.

    ripples always seeking shore
    Empty space has doors

    Great ending ZQ! There is always a way to be creative or to right wrongs.Yet not all take the cue nor care to redress situations that may make one to be revered and admired!

    Mistakes at times can be painfully unrewarding, good one.

    Wow I am re-reading over and over as your words melt over my heart…such incredible insight especially ’empty space has doors’….so deep and I am smiling shaking my head yes, yes, yes! I need to keep those doors in sight!

    I especially love “wind in silence blows” and “Empty space has doors”. Loved this, kiddo.

    Deep thoughts to ponder and yes roses do have thorns and perhaps part of their allure.

    The two haiku are both profound reflections on life and the season.
