men, women, children of faith

shot dead on the sand

do not resist their captors

when asked to deny their faith

view own reflection

from myopic perspective

seek wisdom beyond

look in mirror of God’s word

abundant vision for life

(James 1:22-25)

pause to peek through the keyhole

smell blossoms of paradise

 

Kiwinana challenges us to write a tanka with “color” and “summer”.

laid down life for friends

blood congealed, stiff body wrapped

stone seals death in tomb

soldiers wipe spear and spikes clean

women grieve over spices
