Haiku of Righteous Thought

Inspired by Dafa

Karma turned virtue
Evil eliminated
Virtue travels home

Foe falls defeated
Demon laughter quieted
Perpetual peace

Heaven earth conjoin
Restoring eternity
Missions completed


The Hazy Way of Shades of Grey

When caught in the haze
Inside shades of grey
Navigate the way
Compass night or day
Find the source of light
Discern wrong from right
Down in the valley
Or up on the heights

When lost in the midst
Adrift in the mist
Grasping open hands
Swinging fists that miss
Venomous snakes hiss
Placing on the dish
The apple of eye
Temptation of bliss

This bliss never lasts
Eating breaks the fast
Stomach turns and churns
Teeth crash and gnash
Hungry actions rash
Sparks desire’s burn
Lessons unlearned
Life falls in a flash
