Morning has broken
Light filters through the shutters:
Good morning Jesus.

Thoughts in Haiku

As Lava erupts from the volcano under the Eyjafjallajokull glacier,
I think in Haiku (this is my very first Haiku)...

Volcano erupts
Monster ash cloud moves south east -
Passengers stranded.

Today I lit a candle

Light a Candle

Today I bid farewell to Connie, a lovely person,
a sweet acquaintance and a dear neighbour.
In her memory I lit a candle and wrote this poem which I share here...

Today I lit a candle
For someone I hardly knew,
From what I've learned today of her
She was one of a chosen few.
With her kind and gentle smile,
A silent wave, a nod,
With a quiet disposition,
She was a virtuous woman of God.

I'd have loved to have known you better
Yet your silence and example says all,
It seems you were so well prepared
And always ready for your call.
In your memory I light this candle
That we may never be apart
For in your passing to eternal life,
Your light will shine within our heart.

~Doreen Scerri~
