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

Snow White’s Awakening


That first look

Into eyes of blue

Quizzical

Admiring

Rescued from a bad dream by

The awakening kiss

Shadorma

(This poem was written in response to a suggestion made by our poetry class instructor. She said to imagine what Snow White felt like when she first opened her eyes after the Prince kissed her.  So…I imagined…and this Shadorma was the result.😊)
