disciples and Jesus
share passover meal
Judas betrays him—
kiss seals the deal

arrested, on trial
in kangaroo court
soldiers spit, hit,
crown him for sport

Pilate denies
hate crucifies
Messiah dies

tomb found empty
wondrous surprise
because he lives
we, too, will rise!


The day after Resurrection Sunday and linking a quadrille (44 words) for dVerse prompt using the word “rise”.

    You’ve told the story well in this tight quadrille. I like the use of rhyme with all the “ies”

    The story told in so few words, but rise is a fitting word for this.
