“Simplicity, Solitude, and Submission” Haiku Series

The next installment of my spiritual discipline haiku series. I have had a harder time comprehending and connecting to these specific disciplines and so there are fewer inspired poems. Led by Meredith, Mama Zone, and Julia, these discussions help us grow as interns while we daily strive to serve.

Reach simplicity
Stripping the material
To truth underneath

Stop the busyness
Open an ear to listen
To the silence ring

When we are alone
We are never abandoned
Or truly alone

Forgive my mistakes
Justice will come to us all
It is not our place

Escape self-pity
Deny oneself, refuse faults
Create your freedom

Far more rewarding
Are inward alterations
Than outer changes
