A Gloaming, an epoch haiku



Haiku #24_A Gloaming


Dark spreads its pall,

Nightfall slinking its crawl.

Light spurns withdrawal.



Creeping darkness tends to command attention away from little niceties that are more pleasant to write about. However, elegant amenities are needed during such a period in time. To count our blessings requiring more focus, this may be true. Even so, God’s blessings are still spread to be treasured.

Who sharpens attentiveness things of the everyday in comparison to a gnawing, growing fear of strange happenings routinely evidenced? It’s human nature to pick at a sore tooth. Yet, not to disregard all the healthy teeth for they require our attention, also.

The Lawless one has yet to be revealed. But his kingdom is spreading, preparing the way for his ultimate turpitude until his time is ended. Then Savior’s Light will prodigiously re-enter the world, splitting darkness like lightning flashing from the East to the West, consuming it all. We are not witnessing chaos, as some would have us believe. There is form to these strange times. I have it on Good Authority.

“For just as the lightning comes from the east and flashes as far as the west, so will be the coming [in glory] of the Son of Man [everyone will see Him clearly].” Matthew 24:27 (AMP Bible)




Isaiah 60:1-5

“Arise, shine, for your light has come,
    and the glory of the Lord rises upon you.
See, darkness covers the earth
    and thick darkness is over the peoples,
but the Lord rises upon you
    and his glory appears over you.
Nations will come to your light,
    and kings to the brightness of your dawn.

“Lift up your eyes and look about you:
All assemble and come to you;
your sons come from afar,
and your daughters are carried on the hip.
Then you will look and be radiant,
your heart will throb and swell with joy…”

  1. “We are not witnessing chaos, as some would have us believe. There is form to these strange times. I have it on Good Authority.” Amen! Our church is reading through Tyndale’s Immerse series. Basically it’s a Bible reading program. Earlier this year we read the Prophets. I was surprised and comforted by the understanding and encouragement I found in the words of Isaiah, Micah, Amos, Jeremiah . . . Only the Lord knew how much I would draw on those words to help process all that has taken place in these last months.
    Have a wonderful 4th of July weekend and Happy Independence day in Christ!

    1. Yes! Amen!
      I have spent the last nearly four years doing an in-depth study, again, of the OT, paying very close attention to the Prophets. These days we’re in bring it all home to me.
      Happy independence Day in Christ to you, too, Beth!
