"Have this mind among yourselves, which is yours in Christ Jesus, who, though he was in the form of God, did not count equality with God a thing to be grasped, but emptied himself, by taking the form of a servant, being born in the likeness of men. And being found in human form, he humbled himself by becoming obedient to the point of death, even death on a cross. Therefore God has highly exalted him and bestowed on him the name that is above every name, so that at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, in heaven and on earth and under the earth, and every tongue confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father." Paul to the persecuted at Philippi (2:5-11)

Sijo: Korean Poetry

 

On blogging

Thoughts vanish into the wind, let the gentle reader understand.

Who shall read them?  Who shall hear?  The voice of a writer unseen.

A penny for your thoughts; the reader is greatly overcharged.

  1. Tumultuous thoughts and prayers sent into the wind
    Are heard at once by The Master
    Who voices calm "It is I ; fear not."

  2. This may be more fun than hiku because it is not so self-important.

  3. Soji is three lines of fourteen syllables, OK so far

    Each line broken in half,
    Stupid rule and unnecessary

    Oh, what! A twist in the third line?
    Too much, not possible!!
