Stake Conference Notes: Revolutionary ConTEXTing Haikus

August 28, 2016

During the Dry Creek Stake Conference (Springville, UT) of the LDS Church, I took notes in haiku form.
Maybe they should be separated, but … that will take too much time!

How can I make a/
big diff’rence in the world? Get/
involved saving souls. 10:27 a.m.

What is taught to me/
In the temple depends on/
My heart, soul and need. 1037 am

If she knows the names/
Of God’s servants, how much more/
Does God know His kids? 1055 am (after the mission president’s wife talked about each missionary in attendance individually).

Don’t try to douse a/
Raging fire of sin with just/
A glass of water. 11:12

Keeping the Sabbath /
Gets hard when you want to be/
With wand’ring children. 1119

Kid’s aren’t the cause of/
irreverence in church. It’s/
what adults think of.
1129 am

Our temple service /
Is an expression of our/
Love and testimony. 1142

I covered my face/
‘Til a child grabbed my hand/
And forced me to see. 1148

She led us with such
Joy that I watched her move from/
Expert to artist. 1202 pm (Watching the choir director /chorister lead music).

On Accepting Help: Revolutionary IMprov Free Verse Poem

March 25, 2016

It’s such a common thing
among
the sisters of Zion.

So many walls up.
So much fear.
And worry.
And don’ts.
And can’ts.
And shouldn’ts.

As though they think
anyone will think
less of them
for the less
that others do
to them.

As though we
who have been
or could be
there
would ever
deride them
for seeking,
quietly,
for the help
others force them into.

They feel bad
and hide
and suffer
inside,
instead
of letting charity
never fail.
