Edges Off { Haiku }

We have only this
To spur us onward, great love,
Plus, beneath us, dust.

A heart gains passion,
For what exists eternal,
Beyond its knowledge.

Light up the moment
With incandescent joy, love,
A fire set above.

All my needs I bring
To Jesus Christ, my sovereign King
Who rules all present.

Sometimes one laughs like
Tears never existed, though
The trails track one’s face.
