Give 'n Take


after he swore at
Yahweh and wasn't struck down
conversation flowed

he tossed into their pond marked
impending chaos

Finches


deemed far too messy
his yellow finches won't find
last summer's feeder

A Memory


in his clothes
hours after they said goodnight
her perfume lingered

Easter Monday 2017


Chick among wooden Easter Eggs, (made and hand painted in Poland) represents new life in the Lord!  Scripture below is from John 20:19-21
"In the evening of that same day (Sunday), the first day of the week, the doors were closed in the room where the disciples were, for fear of the Jews.  Jesus came and stood among them.  He said to them 'Peace be with you', and showed them his hands and his side.  The disciples were filled with joy when they saw the Lord, and he said to them again, 'Peace be with you, as the Father sent me, am I sending you.'  After saying this he breathed on them and said: 'Receive the Holy Spirit.  For those whose sins you forgive, they are forgiven; for those whose sins you retain, they are retained' "

"It was very early on the first day of the week and still dark, when Mary of Magdala came to the tomb.  She saw that the stone had been moved away from the tomb and came running to Simon Peter and the other disciple (John), the one Jesus loved.  'They have taken the Lord out of the tomb' she said 'and we don't know where they have put him'  So Peter set out with the other disciple to go to the tomb. They ran together but the other disciple, running faster than Peter, reached the tomb first;  he bent down and saw the linen cloths lying on the ground, but did not go in.  Simon Peter who was following now came up, went right into the tomb, saw the linen cloths on the ground, and also the cloth that had been over his head; this was not with the linen cloths but rolled up in a place by itself. Then the other disciple who had reached the tomb first also went in; he saw and he believed.  Till this moment they had failed to understand the teaching of scripture that he must rise from the dead."

"They then took charge of Jesus and carrying his own cross he went out of the city to the place of the skull or, as it was called in Hebrew, Golgotha where they crucified him with two others, one on either side with Jesus in the middle.  Pilate wrote out a notice and had it fixed to the cross; it ran: 'Jesus the Nazarene, King of the Jews', This notice was read by many of the Jews, because the place where Jesus was crucified was not far from the city, and the writing was in Hebrew, Latin and Greek.  So the Jewish chief priests said to Pilate, 'You should not write "King of the Jews", but "This man said: I am King of the Jews" ' Pilate answered, 'What I have written, I have written' "
