Holy Week Haiku

nail, nail, nail pounded
crushing through forgiving flesh
my God, my God, why...

~

bloody, bruised, beaten
bearing the sins of the world
love hangs on a cross

~

wounded, sacred head
shrouded in darkness and death
sin's wages now paid

~

casting off grave clothes
He, who once was dead, drew breath
exhaling new life
