Haiku Wednesday

Join the fun!

This week’s theme is: Passion


Whipped, stripped and beaten.
Nailed to the Cross...The 4th Cup.
The Passion of Christ.

Dying for our sins,
Body pierced. Blood, water flow.
The heavens cry out!

In tomb hewn from earth
He was placed. Disciples mourn.
Are we foresaken?

No! For 3 days hence
Our beloved Lord arose!
The birth of our faith!

Haiku is simple! It is 3 non-rhyming lines of 5, 7, and 5 syllables respectively. To participate click on the Haiku banner above and then click on "Home". And if you decide to try to do one yourself, I dare you to not use your fingers! I can't get through a Haiku without mine!

Nice! Who knew you were a poet!!

Thanks Lee. Although not true Haiku (in the strictest sense it must be about nature) I do enjoy writing in Haiku format.

Nice. I adore religious imagery. Even though I wasn't raised very religious myself. Still, you can't beat the motifs.

Wow. This is beautiful!

Liz in Virginia said...

Hey, you're a poet and you didn't know it :D Or, maybe you did...? Love it either way.

Lissaloo said...

Beautiful, I love how you defined passion :)

Yours are lovely. But how about:

Blogging all day long
Housework is not getting done
I'm in big trouble

(yes - I absolutely used my fingers)

LarryG said...

this is dynamic, the deeper side of passion for sure!
thanks sis!

Unknown said...

Only girl...That's me in a nutshell, too! I have a dining room full of laundry waiting to be folded, I still haven't showered, kid's been schooled so at least I accomplished that! Thanks again to all of you for the encouraging kudos!

Tracie said...

You are so good at these! Love where you took the theme.

Is everyone better?

Jenn@ You know... that blog? said...

I can tell what your passion is, definitely ;)

Great job!
