#Haiku: Light



The light of God

found in unlikely places

shines for those who see

Linda Lee Lyberg

This is the quatrain we have been given to work with:
And this I know: whether the one True Light,
Kindle to Love, or Wrath consume me quite,
One Glimpse of It within the Tavern caught
Better than in the Temple lost outright.
© Omar Khayyam (Tr. FitzGerald)
