On That Tree

I’ve been writing a little more the last week or so in different forms: getting back to journaling mostly but also some haikus. Today I’d like to share a tanka with you (which is similar to haiku but has a meter of 5-7-5-7-7) that I wrote this morning.

Humble yourself for
Mercy and grace given free
Rejoice and receive
Salvation today poor soul
Your debt was paid on that tree
