Carpe Diem's Tan Renga Challenge Month #X

Atreyee’s "The Soul Drenched in Love"
the Soul drenched in love seeks nothing- gives everything finds Buddha within
(c) Atreyee
wandering, my spirit spreads its wings  struggling to reach eternity

sharing with trepidation to Carpe Diem's Haiku

An aside: like the butterfly emerging, 
I am taking a risk with writing tan rengas.
As a first grade teacher,
I knew the importance of making
my classroom safe so that students
would risk being wrong.
It's so much easier to teach a concept
than it is to practice it.

Our Parish's Loss and Heaven's Gain

Along with the Knights,
parishioners also took turns
keeping vigil
 through the night,lasting till 10:30 a.m.
and the funeral at 11:00 a.m.
Today our church was packed
to say our farewells and
convey our respect and love
for this wonderful priest.

Remembered JoyDon't grieve for me, for now I'm free!
I follow the plan God laid for me.
I saw His face, I heard His call,
I took His hand and left it all...
I could not stay another day,
To love, to laugh, to work or play;
Tasks left undone must stay that way.
And if my parting has left a void,
Then fill it with remembered joy.
A friendship shared, a laugh, a kiss...
Ah yes, these things I, too, shall miss.
My life's been full, I've savoured much:
Good times, good friends, a loved-one's touch.
Perhaps my time seemed all too brief—
Don't shorten yours with undue grief.
Be not burdened with tears of sorrow,
Enjoy the sunshine of the morrow.
An Irish blessing found here.
