LENTEN MEDITATION
nails pierce
foliage bones,
who drives a stake through life?
the taste of sin sours his gall
shame weeps


❧✿❧

THE JOKE'S ON US
madman!
messiah ha!
if God's king did come then,
glitz would have been every entrance
really?

  3. Whew. I have never observed Lent, but I hear you. I had never thought of the comparison of Jesus's nails and a vampire stake before. Gives me pause. These poems (this poem) are brilliant, sharp jewels!

  10. You raise disturbing questions.

    (Put this comment in wrong place first, hence the delete.)

  11. I like the laughing tone of the second poem. It sounds like the speaking is roaring while the whole thing is happening...

  12. I like your verses, Gillena. The second rings true with the thoughts the Jewish people were having even when Jesus was mingling in person with them. Many still share those thoughts.

  13. Both poems have a cutting edge - "a stake through life"… well, many do, but in different ways. And, indeed, I wonder how long they laughed and mocked and his expense.
