Last night I read a sonnet in Malcolm Guite’s After Prayer: New Sonnets and Other Poems. It is in a series of sonnets on the images George Herbert used in his wonderful poem Prayer (1). The poem can be found in George Herbert: 100 Poems, selected and edited by Helen Wilcox.
The image for this sonnet was “heaven in ordinary”. Guite’s poem was beautiful. It helped me write this haiku:
with the light of Christ
heaven in ordinary
shines through creation
Then this morning after writing in my journal, I went for a walk after writing. Before I left, I prayed that I would see some of that divine light shining during my walk. Returning home, I wrote this haiku:
windy november ground
covered in dead wet leaves…
promise of new life
May you see the divine light in your life today!
