Kingdom Authority

Walking in the temple courts,
His authority accusingly questioned;
The question dismissed,
The accusers challenged:
Identify John’s baptism ;
Of water and of spirit
But by heaven, or by man?

Trap set . . . trap sprung . . .
By their own insincerity, and fear
So in fear they retreated,
“We do not know.”
Now, dare not question further

– Mark 11:27-33

Our Friend Suffers

Written following this week’s Haiku Challenge on RonovanWrites – “Ill and Rest” :

Our friend suffers still
Lord, heal his ills, soothe his soul
Give him restful peace
