Haiku: Circle


The first speaks to the prayer circle at church each Sunday at the children's noon service. The second speaks to the big move of our friends to New Zealand. [Sorry J.]


Sundays we clasp hands
to send appeals and heap praise
greater than from one.


Equally apart
on the globe, reality
fades to virtual.



[Many circles can be found this week at One Single Impression.]
