Golgotha

A long time ago
On a hill far faraway
New hope born from death

‘So the soldiers took charge of Jesus. 17 Carrying his own cross, he went out to the place of the Skull (which in Aramaic is called Golgotha). 18 There they crucified him, and with him two others – one on each side and Jesus in the middle.’
– John 19:16-18

written in response to today’s daily prompt from The Daily Post – ‘faraway’

The Bread and the Wine #NaPoWriMo2016 #GloPoWriMo2016

The bread and the wine,
Reverently consumed,
So we never forget
Your death made us room
In the kingdom of heaven,
In the house of the Father,
With the angelic host
Singing praise to the Master.
In the cup, on a plate,
Simple elements combine
To mark Your victory:
Broken bread, poured-out wine.

An old favourite of mine, originally posted in January 2014, and brought out for Day Six of the National Poetry Writing Month challenge – to write a poem about food . . . so why not the Lord’s Supper?
