#Haiku Happenings #5: Dwight Roth’s latest #tanka for my current #haikai challenge!
As darkness deepens
on a world filled with sadness
Advent brings new Light
Hope for a brighter future
Reach out for God’s Love and Grace
Painting Piercing the Darkness: Dwight L. Roth
Tomorrow is the first Sunday in Advent in the Christian tradition. Frank Tassone asked us to write a Haikai poem that refers to Advent. For me Advent is all about the contrast between darkness and Light. I did the painting above a few years ago to illustrate that concept.
The Gospel of John says: …”and the Word become flesh and dwelt among us” This is what Adventis all about! Jesus brought Light and Life to all who will follow after him… a refreshing change in a dark world.
