Confirmation Haiku Experiments

Written around the time of our 2010 Confirmation service:

In soft May flowers,
These faithful new believers
Share new unbelief.

Pushing through spring reds,
New brothers and sisters
Lift high our loving Christ.

As dew on new grass,
These faithful seven glisten,
Claiming faith afire.

(c) Tom Bolton, 2012, West Allis


About Tom Bolton

I'm a Husband and Dad, an Enterprise Systems Manager at the City of Milwaukee, and a Disciple and Lay Servant at First United Methodist of West Allis. I love working beside young people. As I study the Bible, sometimes I feel moved to work through my understanding by writing poetry. I also am going through a process to discern my calling, and to learn more about Christian Leadership. Sometimes I just feel like writing about something that grabs my attention too.
