Haiku Unicorn

A Poem by Nancy Lee Shrader

Haiku Unicorns

Pretty unicorns

They found favor in God's eye

But were not too smart



God saw much evil

Frowned down on his creations

Must destroy them all



Noah found favor

God chose Noah to survive

Build an ark, God said



Take your family too

It will rain for forty days

No one will survive



Remember my words

Take all animals two by two

All will come in time



For sure remember

Don’t forget my unicorns

I favor them most


The Ark was finished

Noah called them two by two

And they came from everywhere



Dancing on the cliffs

Unicorns watched as he worked

Still they dragged their hooves




Nostrils smelled the air

Thought they had plenty of time

They didn’t smell rain




The sun shined brightly

There were no clouds in the sky

Noah called to them




Unicorns waited

To see the first drop of rain

Noah called them in



Still they didn’t come

All animals were inside

Noah’s family too



God closed the ark’s door

Dark clouds were filling the sky

Rain burst forth and poured




Silly unicorns

Did not heed Noah’s last call

They climb the mountain




Hear their snorted cries

Mountain wasn’t high enough

Drown in foolishness




Moral of this tale

Don’t dance around when God calls

Be guided by faith




Or be left standing

On the shore in pouring rain

And not on God’s boat


You must heed God’s call

When he knocks on your heart’s door

Or be left behind

This is just too sad. Reminds me of that song, not sure of the title, when the unicorns play around instead of getting into Noah's Ark, so that's why there are no unicorns.

Silly unicorns, they ought to have known better, although nice haiku string!

I love what you did with this. Believe it or not the unicorn song is my favorite song to this day (plus puff) guess we all retain the child in us. And this points it out so well. If like a naughty child we do not listen, we are punished. God is our supreme parent. Don't dance when God calls be guided by faith. You did great with this work.

Choices, we all have them. I guess unicorns made the wrong one. Cool Beans

beautiful. The lines really seemed to have a nice flow to them. They seem to almost roll off the tongue if spoken aloud.
