A haiku written for Good Friday
O Forsaken One,
You know the depths of sorrow.
We sit with you now.
I see Good Friday pain, death, and sorrow mirrored everywhere... I saw this stump on a walk this week and the image caught me with its starkness. What have you seen that feels forsaken? Christ, the Incarnate One, is here in the world with us, in places of pain and woundedness.
The invitation today is to witness it and sit with it.
