bible haiku

December 16, 2009 at 12:31 am 2 comments

I was tagged by Kay from Ephemeral Thoughts with this blog meme called “The Bible in 5 Statements”:

Summarize the Bible in five statements, the first one word long, the second two words long, the third three words long, the fourth four words long and the last five words long. Or possibly you could do this in descending order. Tag five people.

I’m sticking with her “bible haiku” label because it sounds that way to me too. I found it hard to write without being glib and it makes me realize how divided my perspectives on the bible are. But here’s mine:

secrets forever hidden in time
beautiful, cruel, and tedious
cleverly spun tales
man’s yearning

Profound, huh?  :P

I couldn’t figure who would want to be tagged, so consider yourself tagged if you want to be. Below are other participants Kay listed. There are a number of great blogs there, only a few of which I have read before, definitely worth checking out.

    Let’s see, for fun, I will make slight substitutions on yours.
    Only cause yours is so good, it is easy to work with.
    Btw, I loved “Hegemony”!

    Intentions forever buried in time
    beautiful, cruel, and tedious
    cleverly spun tales
    man’s insecurity
    hodgepodge !

    Thanks for your Haiku !
