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

Everyone Has Their Days

Painting of Sunrise, Never Give Up text

Physically on earth

We will lose sometimes.

Yet, Spiritually,

We who are in Christ are winners,

For In Him is victory.

Tanka

Today, on earth, the groundhog didn’t see his shadow so Spring won and Winter lost.

Today on earth, at the Super Bowl, the KC Chiefs won and the San Francisco 49ers lost.

Today, somewhere on earth, someone in the world received Christ as their Lord and Savior and the devil lost.

But thanks be to God, which giveth us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ 1Corinthians 15:57

For whatsoever is born of God overcometh the world: and this is the victory that overcometh the world, even our faith. 1John 5:4

Guiding Light

Bethlehem Star

His Star

In the Eastern sky

Was a sign

Of His birth

Pointing towards Bethlehem

Leading Wise Men

Shadorma

Now when Jesus was born in Bethlehem of Judaea in the days of Herod the king, behold, there came wise men from the east to Jerusalem,

Saying, Where is he that is born King of the Jews? for we have seen his star in the east, and are come to worship him.

Matthew 2:1-2 KJV

Endless

Eternal life,

Eternal life awaits

Everyone who will

Express true faith in Christ

Each one has a chance

Extend your your heart and

Embrace God’s free gift

Embodied in Jesus

Pleiades

This titled form was invented in 1999 by Craig Tigerman, Sol Magazine’s Lead Editor. Only one word is allowed in the title followed by a single seven-line stanza. The first word in each line begins with the same letter as the title. Hortensia Anderson, a popular haiku and tanka poet, added her own requirement of restricting the line length to six syllables.

The Light of the Gospel

Candle light

Light, radiating,

Reflecting His image,

Casts luminous glow,

Dispelling darkness.

Glorious Gospel

Of Jesus The Christ

Syllabic Verse (5 syllables)

Jesus Christ is the True Light but

…the god of this world has blinded the minds of the unbelievers, to keep them from seeing the light of the gospel of the glory of Christ, who is the image of God. 2 Corinthians 4:4 ESV

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”?
