On Day 5 of the April 30 Days of Poetry Challenge, I am asked to write an Ode. Yes, I looked up how to write an ode – which goes back to Greek times. And then how to write a modern ode and then who could I write an ode to but Jesus on this Holy Week? Day 5 is “An Ode to Love.” 30 Days of Poetry Challenge is hosted by The Second Cup.
An Ode To Love
Waiting, resting, wondering – so much here this Holy Week.
Love amongst Hosanna, the betrayal, the sting, and the silver, the anointing oil in an alabaster flask, the final lessons, washing of dusty feet, breaking of bread and wine, blood and tears, and deep prayers of grief, with mocking, spitting, a crown of thorns, and of the cross with our sin.
A veil is torn, the earth quakes, the sky is dark, and the tomb soon will be empty.
So much love in this Holy Week.
A week of praise, prayer, suffering, surrender, sorrow, and joy.
Here is to the week that changed the world with the One who came to Love Jesus.
