Released from bondage

Freedom joyfully embraced

Painful memories

Disappeared in far distance

Twirl in heavenly dancing

Autumn

Golden new shapes

Cooling, changing, rustling

Aromatic fresh mist in air

Music in air mist

Penetrates my sensations

Melts shape of my heart

“Senryu (also called human haiku) is an unrhymed Japanese verse consisting of three unrhymed lines of five, seven, and five syllables (5, 7, 5) or 17 syllables in all. Senryu is usually written in the present tense and only references to some aspect of human nature or emotions. They possess no references to the natural world and thus stand out from nature/seasonal haiku.” – Shadow Poetry

My daughter Mercy’s baby is arriving any minutes by now. I still remember back in March when we skyped and talked with each other. Mercy and Will showed us the ultrasound film. We made a virtual hug at the end. The joy of parenthood, the wonder of bringing a new life into this word were so overwhelmed. Mercy has been excited and celebrated the process by capturing the moments in photos. The family and community are so enthusiastic and supportive. This gives them a firm assurance and confidence.

Song of lullaby

Watching baby’s sleepy eyes

Overwhelming joy

Parents’ faces radiate

Gift of fulfillment resides

Rejoicing in Your sanctuary

Elevating my mind, heart, soul and

Spirit with doubts and heaviness left behind

Trusting You for my today and tomorrow

It may be rainy, stormy or sunny day

Never ever You would leave me alone

Grace and mercy always carry me through
