Haikus for Advent: Week Three





I have been composing a haiku for each day of Advent this year and posting it on Twitter.

Below are the haikus I wrote for Week Three of Advent. (See also Week Two and Week One.)


********

the candle of joy
is lit; its fire awakens
our cold, sleeping hearts

********

O Wisdom, show us
the right path; be a lantern
guiding our footsteps

********

O Adonai - keep
your promise to redeem us
and to bring justice

********

O Jesse's Son: you
are the one who was promised
and for whom we wait

********

O Key of David
no one can close what you open
or thwart your purpose

********

O Bright Morning Star
earth groans in darkness, longing
for light to break in

********

O King of Nations
reconcile us to yourself
and to each other


********
