Blog #77: A Poem of Heat and Rain

July 7th, 2022
Maria Cristina Krier
Our flight is delayed/
We wait patiently to go/
And enjoy ourselves.
While it’s raining here/
In Scotland and in London/
Vienna dwells in heat.
That’s the proof that now/
The real summer has arrived/
And holidays start. 
Dear God, give us peace/
And freedom and heartfelt Love/
For all those in pain.
 May God’s Love surround/
And strengthen all of us now/
And for ever more.
During the summer months - instead of putting together our regular blog - we invite our readers to contribute a Haiku reflecting on creation or efforts in creation-keeping.  Haikus are a short form of poetry, originally from Japan. Traditionally, they consist of three phrases - the first one with five syllabi, the second one with seven syllabi, and the third with five syllabi again. One haiku is enough, but you can also combine it with a picture, a story, or another haiku. Feeling inspired? Please send your haiku it to This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.
