In an attempt to corral my racing thoughts and pounding heart, I turned once again to writing Haiku. A trio emerged.

  1. Anxious mind
    Pulling up daisies
    Checking roots
  2. Anxious heart
    wringing hands sweating
    Calm hands pray
  3. Aching hands
    white knuckle anxious
    Jesus saves

NOTE: The traditional form of haiku in English consists of a pattern of 5, 7, and 5 sound units. A composition of 3, 5, 3 challenges the verbose to strictly confine their thoughts.
