Snow falling on prayer books

I found this delightful little book at the seminary bookstore. It's called Episcopal Haiku, by Sarah Goodyear and Ed Weissman. A sampling:

Squalling kids in the
last pews: far from the altar,
but closest to God.

The choir rehearses.
A soprano fails to curb
her inner diva.

Swallowing God is
Easier with two cookies
and a cup of juice.

When on the vestry,
friends you've known for many years
suddenly go nuts.

If you dare, try one yourself.
