This week at DVerse, we are writing haibun about faith. I could write countless poems on this topic, but here’s just one. This is also for NaPoWriMo day 2.

When we were young, my older brother asked me if I believed in angels. When I said, “Yes,” he replied, “Really?” derisively. After that, I thought that I was wrong, that angels couldn’t exist because my brother had said that they didn’t.

I don’t think the same way anymore: I do believe in God, and in angels, and in the value of my point of view.

Sapling supported
In early spring, now stands tall
Rooted, and branching.

  1. I love the moral of your story…to learn to believe in yourself and your point of view. So many people believe in what others tell them rather than thinking and believing in their own view of life.
