Easter Poems

He’s alive!
Written to follow "Between Good Friday and Easter Sunday"

Between
The time between Good Friday and Resurrection Sunday seems to ebb in flow a different reality that seems closer to human life. A mix of grief and wonderment, pain and celebration, waiting and ready to move on.

Between Good Friday and Easter Sunday
I have tried to capture the shattered world of the disciples immediately after the crucifixion, but before they heard the glorious news of the resurrection of Jesus

The Man in the middle finalist in poetry contest
I put myself at the foot of the cross, being transformed by the power of His love. How some can receive His love and forgiveness and how some don't. Luke23:26-49.

Simon Peter finalist in poetry contest
Then Jesus answered, "Will you really lay down your life for me? Very truly I tell you, before the rooster crows, you will disown me three times!" John 13:38

Peter
Unlike Judas, Peter went out and wept bitterly after he denied Jesus. Repentance causes us to change for the better. I wrote this after reading Luke 22:31-34 and verse 61,62.

Gethsemane finalist in poetry contest
Written 20 years ago, but still one of my faves. I think the lines ending with double syllables produce a breathless urgency, hurtling the story to its conclusion. After 20 years, I finally tweaked the final stanza that bothered me with extra syllables.

You chose to climb the hill and not turn back
I was reflecting on the temptation of Jesus and struck by the fact that Jesus said "No" to Satan and chose the way to Calvary

Behold, the Man
Then Jesus came out, wearing the crown of thorns and the purple robe. And Pilate said to them, “Behold the Man!” John 19:5 (NKJV)
