Sorrowful Mysteries, 5 Haiku

Syllabic meditating as days shorten. Poems open mindful heart door.

The Agony in the Garden

Night sweats blood. Lamb waits
Spring sacrifice. Sleep under
stars nears awaking.

The Scourging at the Pillar

Behold as blood flows
The Man in full throes of Passion
Kingdom of earth's growth.

The Crowning with Thorns

Hails King with taunting.
Crowns King with scalp tearing barbs 
New seeds bursting through.

The Way of the Cross

Burdened beneath tree.
Sinks below scorn. New growth
Struggles against gravity

The Crucifixion 

View from a hill. Death
with dishonour. Winterlike 
dark descends. Awhile.
