Like a Lamb

Three crosses on a hill

Legions of angels

Stood aimed, battle ready

To strike at command

As the Son of God

Stood in the dark garden and

Faced His accusers

His disciples ran

His betrayer kissed His cheek

Yet He was silent

Triple Haiku

He was oppressed and He was afflicted,

Yet He opened not His mouth;

He was led as a lamb to the slaughter,

And as a sheep before its shearers is silent,

So He opened not His mouth.

Isaiah 53:7

A Remembrance

Cross

Today

Lying in my path

A reminder of You

Twig cross created by the wind’s breath

Speaks loudly

Cinquain

Yesterday as I went out to get my mail it was windy and raining so I was walking with my hood up and head down, when I noticed what looked like a tiny beautiful cross lying in a pool of water on the blacktop. It was fashioned of two light colored twigs that apparently were blown by the wind to end up in that position. The way the light hit it it almost appeared to look golden. It stopped me in my tracks that’s for sure! As I pulled out my phone to snap a picture I thanked God for sending me this reminder on the day before Palm Sunday!

They “Took branches of palm trees, and went forth to meet him, and cried, Hosanna: Blessed is the King of Israel that cometh in the name of the Lord.” John 12:13 KJV

What is “Palm Sunday”?

What is “Holy Week”?

At Calvary

three crosses at Calvary
Soldiers on the way to Calvary
Just another day at Calvary

Roman law is in play at Calvary
Criminals will pay at Calvary

On crosses they will lay at Calvary
Crime they will slay at Calvary

Amongst the noisey fray at Calvary
Some kneel to pray at Calvary

For One sent to stay at Calvary
Is a King they say at Calvary

Son of God on display at Calvary
Father’s will to obey at Calvary

I honor Him today at Calvary
For He lives, Yay! at Calvary
