Three Morning Haikus

Here are three haikus which draw from Psalm 30:5 and Matthew 5:4.

It’s waking this way
That’s the hardest part of sad—
Mourning by morning.

“Blessed are those who
Mourn, for they," the Teacher said,
"Shall be comforted.”

Weeping lasts a night;
His anger, just a moment;
With mourning comes joy.
