Easter Greetings

Wishing all my friends and followers a very Happy and Blessed Easter whether you’re meeting up with family members or friends at long last or anticipating that meet up very soon. I have just a short message this time, by quoting from a published poem of mine. An Easter Haiku.

Nail Scarred hands
Crucified, left to die
That first Good Friday.

Dying for you and me
His separation from the Father
Love pierced him through

Blood running like water
Pouring out new life
He paid the price.

No end to this story
Rising again in glory
And death itself, died.

This Easter Haiku was published in ‘Stones before the Ocean’ An anthology of past and modern poets edited by Daniel Paul Gilbert.

This book is available from Amazon UK https://www.amazon.co.uk/Stones-Before-Ocean-Worship-Anthology-ebook/dp/B01NCOSC76/ or Amazon US https://www.amazon.com/Stones-Before-Ocean-Worship-Anthology-ebook/dp/B01NCOSC76/

    These are very good Haiku. It’s amazing how effective that discipline can be, with the precise requirement of syllables. Thank you for sharing your poetry.
