Good Friday (Luke’s version)

April 7, 2009

Pilate
Tremors at the rush
Defiance pointed elsewhere
“Yes, crucify him!”

Skull
Do not look away
Behold your king, giving all-
But for what reason?

Maundy Thursday (Mark 14)

April 7, 2009

Heel
Broken body-
Elbows, supping bittered oil
Choosing the darkness

Teacher and Lord
Lather, rinse, repeat
Twelve times two
For you and for me

Forsaking
the freedom of choice-
a cross

Rebuking,
a man changes names-
Who am I?

Ash Wednesday

A:  Joel
All faces grow pale
When reality is faced-
We are grossly frail.

B:  Rend
Hearts only-
The rest is details
That may not matter.

Transfiguration (Matthew 17:1-9)

February 19, 2009

A:  To
To be the Beloved,
To hear the words, see the path,
To be changed by God

B:  Disciple’s Eye View
From up here, big world
below pleas, sighs redemption.
It’s a long way down

We believe,
Even if you don’t-
Forgiven

Scribes on left
A tapping of faith-
That’s my roof!
