    I am ready to hear the jaded cynic squawking. I imagine it would be quite the shrill sound!

    Impossible River

    It becomes impossible when we seem not to accept the reality of it all…

    Very nice photo and thought-provoking haiku Becca! 🙂

    Well said! I think the cynic scoffs because he hasn’t seen the light, you need to mix faith with imagination, you can’t rely on what you can see. Phew!

    1 Corinthians 2:14 in haiku form–nice! 🙂

      1 Corinthians 2:14 (NIV)
      “The person without the Spirit does not accept the things that come from the Spirit of God but considers them foolishness, and cannot understand them because they are discerned only through the Spirit.”

      I didn’t realize the correlation at the time. Thank you for sending me the passage! I appreciate your visit and comment.


  9. Oh I like this one very much. Great Photo.

    Impossible sight… nice haiku offering ~

    Funny, Becca … I think that my last comment upon your Haiku spoke of how I both loved and understood most of your Haiku immediately. Now, because I have a “literal old mind,” I cannot see you as either jaded or as a cynic. 😉

    “Faith’s effect” so appeals to me.

    P.S. I didn’t know this kind of plant thrives near the water. They are mainly decorative in my part of the world; in air-conditioned rooms.
