Easter Haiku #2 Monday, Holy Week

Posted: 14 April 2014

The temple was rocked,
The moneychangers challenged,
Tables overturned.

And still it goes on.
Rich bankers, pay day lenders,
Exploiting the poor.
...
Be angry again.
A righteous, holy anger.
A Christ-like anger.

Bill Adair

Poem for the Day

Posted: 13 April 2014

When fishes flew and forests walked
And figs grew upon thorn,
Some moment when the moon was blood
Then surely I was born;

With monstrous head and sickening cry
And ears like errant wings,
The devil's walking parody...
On all four-footed things.

The tattered outlaw of the earth,
Of ancient crooked will;
Starve, scourge, deride me: I am dumb,
I keep my secret still.

Fools! For I also had my hour;
One far fierce hour and sweet:
There was a shout about my ears,
And palms before my feet.

The Donkey
G. K. Chesterton

Easter Haiku #1 Palm Sunday

A tethered colt stands
Alone, unobserved, and then,
Immortality.

Shouts and cheers ring out,
Fickle songs that herald death,
Each palm frond a thorn.

Bill Adair

Poem for the Day

Posted: 12 April 2014

When all the world is young, lad,
And all the trees are green;
And every goose a swan, lad,
And every lass a queen;
Then hey for boot and horse, lad,
And round the world away;
Young blood must have its course, lad,
And every dog his day....

When all the world is old, lad,
And all the trees are brown;
And all the sport is stale, lad,
And all the wheels run down;
Creep home, and take your place there,
The spent and maimed among:
God grant you find one face there,
You loved when all was young.

Young and Old
Charles Kingsley

Poem for the Day

Posted: 11 April 2014

Love it's not I who didn't try
Hard enough hard enough
And this is why I'm saying goodbye
I've had enough, I've had enough

Love you don't see the pain in me
It's plain enough, plain enough
You're never here to catch the tears ...
I cry for us, I cry for us

I'll take my share but I'll be fair
There's not much stuff, easy enough
And if you chose, I'll break the news
This part is tough, so very tough

I've tried and tried to put aside
A time to talk, but without luck
So I'll just pin this note within your coat
And leave the garden gate unlocked

I Cried For Us
Kate McGarrigle
