Vayera in Haiku

Part of Parashat Vayera in haiku....

Three visitors came
Who were they? Maybe angels.
Abe welcomed them in.

Where's Sarah? they asked.
Inside, in the tent, cooking.
Why do you ask me?

Next year at this time
I'll come back, she'll have a son.
Sarah overheard.

Ha ha ha ha ha
Sarah laughed and laughed and laughed.
A kid? When we're old?

And God called her out:
You laughed at My prediction!?
She lied, but got caught.

She did have a babe.
And named him Yitzchak, laughter.
They had a big feast.

Make sure to check out my last haiku Friday and check out the comments...Carolyn of Juggling Frogs was amazing!!!

See more haiku Friday here.
Shabbat Shalom!
P.S. Come back on Monday for a Give-a-way -- my first ever! I'm so excited. I think it's very good. I spent a lot of time thinking about something that would be reflective of who I am and what I am trying to do with my blog. How's that for deep?

I love the Yiddish spelling of Isaac. Good job taking yet another chapter of Genesis, and somehow fixing it into a soap operaesque haiku story!

I love your Haiku...and the story of the birth of Issac!

Sammy's middle name is Issac...

Loosely interpreted Shmuel Yitzchak is G-d heard laughter...ain't that the truth with our boy!

Wonderful! My favorite line is the five syllables of "ha".

(Come to think of it, that could be a movie title.)

Shabbat Shalom, Rabbi/Ima Phyllis, and thank you for the kind mention.
