Senryu is about human nature
Breathe the sunlit air,
uproot weeds watered by tears,
stirred souls plant anew.
Rewritten as a Tanka- 31 syllables
watering roots of despair,
breathe the sunlit air-
nurtured by tears,
frees the soul
to plant anew.
The overturning of Roe v Wade is a prayer and hope of so many. It is a victory for life.
Climate change is seasonal by the time of the year, the one hundred, 500 hundred, 1000 years recurring cycles, pre-flood, post-flood, to today, etc. AS my pastor said last Sunday, God is in control of the weather and the event on earth. God will decide when the earth will be destroyed or cleansed by fire.
Note: The solar blast of 2012 missed our planet by three weeks. I read fractual time years ago, and I remember that our solar system spends 5025 years in each astronomical grid as it rotates. The earth has suffered from both internal volcanic eruptions to celestial catastrophes.
Last week's word was fast and I all could think of was fast talkers, talking points, and media of deceptions. Lies that hurt people and lies people deny, it's a circus.
Yet, God calls up not to be deceived or lost in despair. These things are meant to happen (end-time prophecies). Being lost in turmoil isn't God's plan, but not for the unaware. Just because God is in control amid free will, we experience the consequences of personal choice and humanity's choices.
Like the soil loves the tree, so hope revives our soul to let go and trust God.
I'm not saying it is easy but it puts the focus on God.
