PostSubject: Treachery's Kiss   Sun Feb 03, 2013 2:04 pm

Treachery's Kiss

The kiss upon the cheek.
The countenance glazed
With feigned friendship.
The onlookers in the know
With slander, besmirching
And judgment.
The menacing swords
Having Father’s approval,
Furthering His plan.

Still I must forgive.
Count it all loss
For the excellency
Of His better.
I have right, words
And power to silence
All scoffing.
But I shall not,
And He shall have His way.

And I shall rise
In some bright morn
Of recompense.
And postures,
And much unfeeling,
Found shining in wondrous
Family likeness;
Beside an empty tomb.
The hate forgot.

Psalm 16: 9-11

I like the flow and theme, but I had trouble with the point of view. I couldn't tell if you were writing from your point of view, the Lord's, or switching back and forth.

It's just a picture of Gethsemane and of Jesus' incomparable submission to the will of the Father. There is an interesting painting by James Tissot showing the flashing forth of Jesus' divinity in front of the Temple guards, causing them to fall backward to the ground (John 18). Surely our Lord was in charge of His own arrest. He waited for them to re-compose. He held forth His hands for the shackles (the embodiment of Psalm 118).
