Haikus for every day of April 2021

Thursday, April 1

Triduum begins

Three days of grief, hope, joy

As Jesus rises

Friday, April 2

Why Good Friday?

Jesus dies in such great pain

While his mother weeps


Saturday, April 3

Outdoor fire, bring inside

Vigil readings till midnight

Jesus is alive!


Sunday, April 4

Easter family

Honor Jesus, each other

Love beyond myself


Monday, April 5

Tried to set up tent

Right in living room, but failed

It’s been a long time


Tuesday, April 6

Have “tea” with Andi

On her birthday, thirty-five!

Sit outside with kids

Wednesday, April 7

Strawberry shortcake

Success! We set up our tent

In the living room!

Thursday, April 8

We need a rest day

Sleep longer, smell the roses

Just to catch our breath

Friday, April 9

Today a short trip

Treaty Oak, State graves

Distant Relatives (food truck)

Saturday, April 10

So much to take home

Don’t need electric blankets

In Austin summer

Day before I leave

You can’t go home again

I’m already there

Apple dumpling friend

Drag racing from 12 (sign: “you’ve been passed by a GIRL!”)


Saturday, April 17

Just too much to do

I missed seeing Mary Lou

Left Urbana late

Morning church in car

Zion and Grace, past, present

Hillsboro breakfast at 6

Sunshine here, counsel outside

Like last week in ILL

Covid frustration

What we can and can’t do yet

This is not over

Thursday, April 22

Long trip alone on the plane

We all need fam’ly

Friday, April 23

Storms caused six hour delay

Wake up in Austin

Miles and Jasper just love Marc

And he loves them too

That reject Christian culture

Brush it off again

Block away, little houses

A million dollars

Airport in the rain

That sad feel to say goodbye

Marc will be back soon

(Acts 16, Psalm 138, John 16)
