Psychology Haiku

A novel in hand
She stands before her students
Her fingers trembling


Taking the Lion by the Tail

(Inspired by the works of the late C. S. Lewis)

Getting lost along my way
Needing to be led
You ask if I will follow
I take You by the tail

The purple curtain rises
Another world revealed
Spotlights fall upon the stage
Reality turns clear

The audience is You
Lines are written on my heart
Confession-drenched and hopeful
Applauded for my part

I take a bow in reverence
You whisper in my ear
To say You’ll never leave me
Before You disappear

A roar sounds in the background
Assures me of your truth
Faith, hope, and love map out the way
That leads me back to You.
