The Gospel in Haiku ~ Trilogy of a King

Crosses
The Gospel in Haiku ~ Trilogy of a King

Part I

King is thrice inscribed
Lofty beams on Passover

Ground underneath quakes

Part II

Stone walls, newly cut,
Dusk drifts scent of fragrant myrrh
King dressed in linen

Part III
Cloths neatly folded
A
ngels glimpsed near garden door
“Mary,” said the King

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!
