Haiku Start: He Loves You

Amen amen, He loves you,

Because you have loved me,

Love begets more, amen.

This choppy phrasing, a glimpse into reflection on A passage from the Book of John, 16 by chapter: “…For the Father himself loves you, because you have loved me…”

In the most fundamental way I think this says, if you love others in the way He taught us, then too it follows that we are living God’s love.

I guess it’s all about that, it’s all about love. I recall a license plate frame on a car I’d see at church frequently. It read “God is Love.”

Yes, I think that’s true. That’s why He came. YES.

Why Haiku?

Yes indeed, why Haiku? Here’s a little of why. Not in that form, but following the theme all the same.

Reminded of this format, this genre last week. Spill Rage Against The Machine, music I was listening to in full last weekend, spark! The inspiration.

And so in this shortest-word month of the year, in this time of special chaos and change, change it up, write different, right now,

And so I am, and sharing, still good. For me, for you too. GOOD.
