Haiku--By Carolyn Noah Graetz--United States

my husband
a mouse trap

   his sheep
hear his voice
   yet to follow

   over night flight
         to Rio
my English dissolved

my church leans
   to the left
I open my door

  1. Carolyn, I loved your Haiku, especially the second one. How true many hear His voice and yet wait to follow. Thank goodness He never stops calling and is patient and longsuffering...He never gives up, nor should we in our ability with his help to heed His call. Thank you for sharing your talent.
