Holy Week

Chris's family Easter 2010 011 (2)

We enter this holy week together
Christians and Jews recall God’s protection
Stories of hope and love for each other
Faith strained in the midst of dark hopelessness
Prayers rise and lift us beyond our distress
As we see the Sun/Son rise hope is renewed
New life is ours on the path now pursued

Today at d’Verse Frank Hubney asked us to write a seven line Chaucerian poem. It is in iambic pentameter and has a pattern of ABA BB CC. Hopefully this is close to the real thing!

  1. Bang on, brother. Any time we can combine Christians and Jews without conflict is cool. Now if we could just perform the same magic with Democrats and Republicans, right\? Then, of course, we have this pesky pandemic to deal with as well; smile.

  2. Your poem confirms my beliefs. I recite the 23rd Psalm *every* night before bed. “Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil, for you are with me.” God’s protection indeed. Faith is demanded in dark times and willingly given.

  3. This is a beautiful message and in a time of need.
    Keep your FAITH strong and mighty.

    Plenty of opportunities come from the current situations. Financial and self-growth.
    Some will utilize them, others won’t.

    I’ve explored these myself recently. It’s a hot topic to write about!

    Thank you for sharing this with us! (:
