Senryu #6 2021

alone, walking by
ants gnawing a scorpion
heart of the desert

Brian’s Senryu Maxims

don't put yourself down:
God loves you right where you are
without condition

you can't be coerced
to  regard yourself as cursed,
unless agreed first

ask God for guidance,
don't take counsel of your fears;
consign all to God

expect miracles
then attempt great things for God
trust God's faithfulness

errors will be made
with God, forgiveness certain
with humans, not so

to thyself be true:
the Socratic injunction
without compunction

life's affirmation:
reciprocation is life's
appreciation

Senryu #3 2021

“For by grace are you saved…”

“Grace” in Swahili:
“Neema” meaning “giving love.”
Let your love-light shine.
