Darkest Hour

rocks and cross

through the darkest hour
every tree top in the forest
adorned with a star
                 (Ese)

 

the earth quaked in sorrow

man had crucified God’s Son

 

Good Friday is a day that the earth mourns the death of bright hope.  This supreme sacrifice was intended to set the prisoners free from the shackles of sin. And so we celebrate with misty tears the dark day when Love died.

The Face of Passion #poetry #photography

The Road Ahead

Passion led

 man’s life to spill

His love

on Calvary’s hill

Passion fueled

an angry mob

insults and rocks

cruelly lobbed

Passion moved

the earth to shake

 sky grew dark

bonds would break

Passion cried

 in a tomb he lay

night filled hearts

but we await the day

This poem is in response to the prompt at Verse First/Poet’s United. The prompt is “Passion.” I don’t often write directly on my blog of my faith, but it is what holds me up on good days and on the very worst.
