Biblios Hokku – The Poetry

08 Oct

In this Biblios Hokku journey, we have so far looked at the histories, and next we will be looking at the works of the prophets. 

But first, a few of the poetic works of the bible, reduced to single-verse Haikus.

PSALMS
Praise ye the Lord.
In our joy, and our sadness,
our help comes from Him

PROVERBS
The fear of the Lord
is the heart of all wisdom.
Look to Him and live.

ECCLESIASTES
For God, in his time,
has made beautiful all things,
and timeless our hearts.

SONG OF SONGS
Love is his banner,
love better than any wine.
“Behold! Thou art fair!”
