My Cloak for A King #palmsunday #sundaydevotion

 

 my pink petal robe

beneath un-sandaled feet

lovingly caress

unworthy to meet

The King!

 

What would it be like to have Jesus walk on my cloak, look in my eyes and smile? This Jesus came as a servant to the poor, the sick, the broken, the unaccepted. The leaders could not understand a king like this. They despised this “rule-breaker” who would not conform to the law they had defiled.

Jesus is not of this world. He rules with love and reaches his scepter of forgiveness to all. Grasp for that freedom and you will be washed clean from the mud of this world.

“He was despised and rejected be men, a man of sorrows and acquainted with grief; and as one from whom men hide their faces he was despised and we esteemed him not.”

                                                                    ~Isaiah 53:3

“The next day he saw Jesus coming toward him, and said, “Behold the Lamb of God, who takes away the sin of the world!”

                                                                   ~John 1:29

Today is Palm Sunday. This is the day when Jesus entered Jerusalem on a donkey. He was celebrated and loved. Such a difference one week makes in the lives of us all.

 

Thank you to Wall paper gallery for the free image of the cross it merged perfectly with my shot of the cherry blossoms to make a lovely image.

Palms Sing Rocks Cry

morning breaks

golden rise upon the mountain

light moves gently over the scene

colors join the day in knowing

this is an answer to a dream

 donkey’s colt untied and led forth

his only rider is a king

palm branches line La Via

Hosanna shouts while others sing

the silent rocks they know the story

holding back the truth they know

but one day all will be revealed

and men will cry in shouts of woe

this Palm day swift leads to another

where the course of history bends

his eyes have looked into many

love’s message to each one he sends

Today is Palm Sunday the day when Jesus entered Jerusalem under the hails of Hossanas.

“Some of the Pharisees in the crowd said to Him, “Teacher, rebuke Your disciples.” But Jesus answered, “I tell you, if these become silent, the stones will cry out!” Luke 19:39 & 40

One day (in a week) he is revered, another he is sold,  and blood spills upon the Via Dolorosa…

Wishing all at Poet’s United a Happy Palm Sunday!

Something Old, New, Borrowed, PINK #poetry #photography

Hint of pink

What am I to wear

season passed beneath the snow

ugly bulky winter fare

I will sing a lovely tune

to bring a smile to his face

not noisy as the summer festoon

none other than fragrance of spring

a dash of a tango

might I borrow fairy wing?

midnight  song will I falsetto sing

fresh light notes

nature’s simple offering

ivory with a hint of pink

dance I’ll share with the stars

 jealous be the moon I think

Today is Palm Sunday a day of newness and celebration. I wave my palm branch for the King knowing of the darkness to come.

This poem is from an old archived piece of prose, the poem is new, the photo was borrowed from my photography folder, the rose is a hint of Pink. This my offering for the wonderful, weekly, poetry pantry hosted by Mary at Poet’s United.
