Some Haiku for a Friday

I’ve got kind of a busy morning today, so I’m going to keep it short–like, 17 syllables short.

These are some haiku that I composed as I was thinking about my last Chapel sermon, which was about the call to make peace by turning the other cheek.  

Matthew 6:38-39

“An eye for an eye,”
No!  Please, turn the other cheek.
Eyes are too precious.

And Another, on the Same Theme

If you resist them,
evildoers will just be
encouraged by it.

v. 39

If you strike my cheek,
I will turn the other one
and embrace you

Or,

If you strike my cheek,
I will turn the other one
and embarrass you.

Martin

Martin, you did dream,
and your dream inspired us all.
May we also dream.

Peace,

David
