Sensational Haiku Wednesday-Chrysalis

Image found on Google Images under the following domain:

The hard shelled pupa
transforming, awaits re-birth
in awe of His Truth.

Aren't we all like that?
Hard hearts changing, longing Love,
Born anew with Faith!

Regardless of base beliefs,
Beauty to behold.

And now a nod to one of my favorite bloggers:

Words woven intricately,
Crafty tales emerge!

Nessa pens fine prose
captivating her readers.
My daily must read!

I need to put a note up here on my desk reminding me about Haiku Wednesdays and the up-coming topic. Chrysallis. Reminds me of my walk to Emmaus I did years back. What a wonderful re-birth of my faith!
Happy Wednesday. Off to a doctor appt.

A faith long sleeping
Brought fresh by love's devotion
Power to stand tall.

Isn't it true how we are all just waiting to hear the Truth, like the butterfly waiting to spread its wings! Beautiful poem!

nessa is great person. the analogy , it fits...sometimes we need those moments in the coccoon, others we need to break out of it in order to fly...

Hi, Polly -- loved your haiku; isn't it funny that for some people, the word "chrysalis" just shouts out about faith!

The Cursillo, Emmaus, and Chrysalis retreats are life-changing! My sister and I both attended Emmaus retreats before we were married, and my sister (she of the giant heart) has continued to work within the Chrysalis movement ever since as a volunteer.

Cursillo is almost identical to Emmaus, except in its understanding of what "communion/Eucharist" means -- so it is a good fit for Catholics, Episcopalians, Anglicans, and Orthodox Christians.

What a beautiful Haiku and I love the Hard hearts changing, longing Love. Well done my friend. And the nod to Nessa was brilliant. :) Well done :)

I love chrysalis imagery--and actual, real chrysalises--chrysali?--anyway, I have "raised" a few swallowtail caterpillars from hatchling to butterfly, and it is a wonder to behold--I always feel a bittersweet mixture of joy and sadness when they fly off and leave me :)

Thanks for sharing your haiku with us!

Excellent haiku. You've captured the concept beautifully. And I love extended haiku.

Then you really made it all about me. Thanks!
