For #RonovanWritesWeeklyHaikuChallenge this week the words are Eye & Fade. You could take those words in any number of directions. I thought about darkness and daylight.
My three haiku came to me in a different order than you see here. As I read and reordered them they seemed to flow from one to the next. I’ll not elaborate on my interpretation. They may speak to you in a different way.
Daylight slowly fades
Eyes once sharp are growing dim
Darkness hovers close
New Dreams Come
Old dreams fade away
New ones shine with hope
My eyes look ahead
Dawn Breaks Anew
Dawn breaks bright and fresh
Nighttime fades as fiery eye
Blazes through the mist
In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. He was with God in the beginning.
Through him all things were made; without him nothing was made that has been made. In him was life, and that life was the light of all mankind.
The light shines in the darkness, and the darkness has not overcome it.
