Hear my confession,
set my heart free, Holy One,
though distant from me.

  1. Wonderful photo!:) I wish you a nice Friday and wonderful week end!:)

  2. oh no, this may take a while 😉

  3. I know that feeling! Probably why I lean the Buddhist way. 😀 😀 😀 Do love the cathedral … the color is deep and wonderful. I’ve always been fascinated by churches. Beautiful places that invite folks to enter. I guess what you find inside is up to the listener. I’d rather sit outside (when its cool)!!!!!!!

  4. Look at that blue sky! Absolutely stunning 🙂

  6. Hmmm, I never feel like the Holy One is distant from me. I always feel like It is within me.

    Beautiful haiku thoughts today, Teach.
    Happy Friday !

  7. Beautiful~

  8. He always stands by awaiting your call and prayers!! Just turn around, you will see Him bending down to listen and then he will surely say Amen!!

  9. I love your haiku today.. it raises questions and everyone feels different about this (see other comments) I like that you gave us ‘food for thought’ today. Enjoy your weekend!

  10. Lovely photos, lovely haiku! I must visit regularly!

  11. Alluring shot…standing tall to the testaments of time.

  12. i think you know….
    how deeply i am drawn to mexico and her countless churches.

  13. Let those bells ring, and ring, and ring, and sing my heart-wings to fly…

    Beautiful Cathedral and prayer. I love the shot and the blue sky behind. I can still recall my first confession although I remember it was not the most pleasant of experiences. A lovely haiku.

  15. Heart touching haiku,

    ‘happy is he/she who is conscious of their spiritual need’,

    Thank you for your words and image.
