Easter Poems

Heartbeat Questions
Simple moments in a garden against a backdrop of the powerful resurrection. Often we don't hear God's voice or recognise him in our life as we are focused on grief, pain, expectations of what God should be doing or can't do - and then He meets us!

Best Laid Plans finalist in poetry contest
God has a remarkable way of producing life from death. He creates a calm in the midst of calamity and is able to bring about a blessing in the turmoil of disaster.

He’s alive!
Written to follow "Between Good Friday and Easter Sunday"

Between
The time between Good Friday and Resurrection Sunday seems to ebb in flow a different reality that seems closer to human life. A mix of grief and wonderment, pain and celebration, waiting and ready to move on.

Between Good Friday and Easter Sunday
I have tried to capture the shattered world of the disciples immediately after the crucifixion, but before they heard the glorious news of the resurrection of Jesus

The Man in the middle finalist in poetry contest
I put myself at the foot of the cross, being transformed by the power of His love. How some can receive His love and forgiveness and how some don't. Luke23:26-49.

Simon Peter finalist in poetry contest
Then Jesus answered, "Will you really lay down your life for me? Very truly I tell you, before the rooster crows, you will disown me three times!" John 13:38

Peter
Unlike Judas, Peter went out and wept bitterly after he denied Jesus. Repentance causes us to change for the better. I wrote this after reading Luke 22:31-34 and verse 61,62.

Gethsemane finalist in poetry contest
Written 20 years ago, but still one of my faves. I think the lines ending with double syllables produce a breathless urgency, hurtling the story to its conclusion. After 20 years, I finally tweaked the final stanza that bothered me with extra syllables.
