Resurrection

A crown of thorns~
adorns a head
bowed only hours before
in prayer

Blood~
trickles from flesh
once immortal
now human

Nails~
impale palms
once clasped in prayer,
laid upon the sick,
and stretched out in welcome
to His flock

Spikes~
pierce feet
that bore Him gracefully
as He spread His teachings

Vinegar~
passes lips
that spoke only truth,
love, peace and joy

Thieves~
hang on either side
of Him
who knew no sin

Death~
claims the body
but not the soul...
bestowing us
with everlasting life





 To love means never to be afraid of the windstorms of life: should you shield the canyons from the windstorms you would never see the true beauty of their carvings. ~Elizabeth Kubler-Ross
