Late-Night Haiku XXX (on Genesis 2:18)

The Lord's intent sure,
Much more noble than my own.
Yet we concur thus.

Late-Night Haiku XXIX (on Matthew 16:18-19)

To confess You, Lord,
Is indeed most noble, but--
Who holds Peter's keys?
Daytime Replacement Haiku (Late-Night Haiku XXVIII, on John 20:23)

To whom, Lord Jesus?
Do you leave us quarrelling?
One to bind, to loose.

Late-Night Haiku XXVII (On John 13:35)

Lord Jesus, bless us;
They have not known who we are;
Drown us in your Love.

I'm a little sad to hear this. Keep fighting, Coach. Turn to the Lord with all your heart.
Late-Night Haiku XXVI (On Luke 23:37)

What would you give just
To hear that one homily?
Better yet, to love?

Daytime Replacement Haiku (Late-Night Haiku XXV, on John 7:38)

Yes, Lord, I believe;
Still, I tremble, asking You
If my water lives.
Daytime Replacement Haiku (Late-Night Haiku XXIV, on John 5:7)

They don't go before
Me now, because I'm made strong
By your word, O Christ.
I had decided to write two extra haikus to make up for being gone this weekend, but failed, so now I'm going to write 3 and 1 tonight.

Daytime Replacement Haiku (Late-Night Haiku XXIII, on John 2:3)

When I have no wine,
There is none but Him I seek;
Beseech Him, O Mother.
