Haiku Sermon

A friend of mine started a Facebook group HAIKU FOR BREAKFAST. Being a haiku fan myself,and struggling to finish my sermon today, I decided to try writing the essence of the sermon in haiku form tonight. The text is Exodus 1:8-2:10. I'll post the nine page version of the sermon later tomorrow but here's the short version for tonight:

Shiphrah and Puah
sparing babies Pharaoh's doom.
Moses laughs down river.

You know. I really like the haiku version better than the nine page version.

reminds me of Mark Twain's quote "if I had more time, I'd write a shorter letter". May I join the Haiku FB group?
