Lenten Sonnet

Christ’s Gethsemane Garden agony

Whiplashed body jumps in testimony

Each knifepoint crown thorn draws breathless pathos

Christ falls three times carrying His cross

It would seem determined to capsize

And then it would even deny His rise

But somehow Christ falls and gets up once more

Comes the time to die, the earth in tremblor

His followers joined in a tradition

His Pieta after Deposition

Then Christ was entombed behind a great rock

And when they came to seek Him ~ aftershock

Christ mingled in Galilee soon to send

“Disciple all nations…until times end.”
