King is thrice inscribed
Lofty beams on Passover
Ground underneath quakes
Stone walls, newly cut,
Dusk drifts scent of fragrant myrrh
King dressed in linen
For I delivered to you first of all that which I also received: that Christ died for our sins according to the Scriptures, and that He was buried, and that He rose again the third day according to the Scriptures
1 Corinthians 15: 3, 4
Haikus are short poems that use sensory language to capture a feeling or image. They are often inspired by an element of nature, a moment of beauty or a poignant experience. The traditional style uses three non-rhyming lines with a 5-7-5 syllable format, and one of the lines sets the tone.
I doubt my poems fit the requirements of haiku precisely. Although I appreciate feedback and suggestions, please be gentle and remember it was, after all, my first attempt. Thanks!
