The Cross of Destiny

Three crosses stood still that faithful day As the skies sadly wept a guilted grey On the highest hill they would be seen By Roman ruled eyes that did demean The middle cross covered in rustic red Where the calamitous Christ’s blood sacrificed shed The lachrymal lamb dies for our shameless sins As the whispering winds wind and the sky dims The christened cross made thus Divine For the Christ awaits Ascension to His Holy shrine The weathered wood of dogmatic Destiny Dexterously dismantled while bereaving blessedly The Christ carefully put in a timeless tomb With His Loving Light creates a new womb. March.26.2016 A Happy Easter From (:^WW^:)

Thank you my new friend Cortney...and you are a beautiful being ...but I can not take full credit for this sonnet...for the Angels are guiding and nudging...I believe all poets are nudged by Angels...the more you believe in them the more they nudge...like monkeys on your back lol...god bless and A happy Easter my poetic friend...(:^WW^:)
