Forgive


turn a cheek
forgiving others,
bright lighthouse

~0~0

healing comes
forgiving ourselves,
open hands 

~0~0

He forgives
indifferent hearts,
gold sunrise



Posted for Haiku Heights - Forgive.   This is part of the National Poetry Writing Month.  I used the 3-5-3 syllabic count.

  16. Beautiful verse, Grace! To forgive is to cause feelings of goodness to come to oneself. Many may not see it this way.
