Haiku’s on Memorials by Jane Tawel

Nine Haikus on Memorials

By Jane Tawel

May 26, 2018

1

The night remembers

All the sad and angry times

And powerless, churns.

2

Do we grasp closely

Enough the memories of

All those who formed us?

3

With the rising sun

We choose to flip the page on

Night’s outdated dreams

.

4

To remember you

I look at your sweet lines and

Mine and count the years.

5

Oh, you who seek Me

Remember my commands and

Keep, Keep, Keep, Keep on.

6

Oh, you who seek Me

Forget not that I am Just

As well as loving.

7

Oh, you who seek Me

Remember my grace and love

Poured out in Jesus

8

Remember The Word

Whose dying words hang in the

World’s air like a cross

9

We are set apart

By the memories we share

With all those we love

"I'm Nobody, who are you? Are you nobody too?"-- in the words of that now famous "nobody", Emily Dickinson, I am a no one committed to the great Some One and to the idea that words matter. Even words that no one reads or hears, because I also believe that there is One who always hears the truest and deepest desires of the human heart. My own journey in this world often takes the form of seeking those things that matter through exploring the written word in essay and poetry. Even the small and unknown of us are made better through the creative process since we are made in the image of The Creator of All. I am thankful to have a home in this blog to store my thoughts and thankful for any who sit awhile in this blog home, seeking crumbs on their own journeys.
