Poems by Robert Hawkins

Job 39 • Pinions and Plumage
The wings of the ostrich wave proudly, but are they the pinions and plumage of love? For she leaves her eggs to the earth and lets them be warmed on the ground, forgetting that a foot may crush them and that the wild beast may trample them. Job 39:13-15
Tabernacle
And they are to make a sanctuary for Me, so that I may dwell among them. You must make the tabernacle and design all its furnishings according to the pattern I show you. Exodus 25:8-9
Yahweh
In the late 90s, I wrote a series of 22 poems celebrating the names of God/Jesus. Most of the poems dealt with a distinct title, i.e., The Good Shepherd, The Great Physician, etc. The last one, however, was quite simply -- the names. This is that poem.
Behold, the Man
Then Jesus came out, wearing the crown of thorns and the purple robe. And Pilate said to them, “Behold the Man!” John 19:5 (NKJV)
I’ve Known You Forever winner of poetry contest
Back in 2004 my church studied Rick Warren's book, The Purpose-Driven Life. We spent forty days reading forty chapters. For the 6-week series, I wrote 6 poems based upon the scriptures found in 6 of those 40 chapters. This was for Day/Chapter 2.
Job 3 • Job's Lament
Before I wrote this poem, I had never read the Book of Job. When my daily Bible-reading brought me to Job, I was blown away with the imagery. Job is in the Poetry section of the Bible for a reason!
