Six Takes on ‘Renovation’

Haiku Heights

Crumbs from Christ’s own hand—
enough for renovation
of the famished soul.
~~~ ~~~ ~~~
Water from God’s well—
a stream of renovation
for the thirsting soul.
~~~ ~~~ ~~~
She threw the book down—
she needed renovation
from another source.
~~~ ~~~ ~~~
As he oversaw
the renovation project,
his visage crumbled.
~~~ ~~~ ~~~
wailing jazz trombone
a soulful renovation
for the broken heart
~~~ ~~~ ~~~
A crumbling temple
in need of renovation—
Master Builder, come!
