Easter’s Grace III

by Jem Croucher
This year, last day of Easter - the crown up on the wall
paints a vivid picture which with whimsy I recall
That special time on bended knee humbled and contrite
a simple faith steadfast and true to which I still hold tight
Comfort and a solace true abiding in my heart
held firmly in a life-long hold from which I'll never part

Dogeaster Egghunt

by Jem Croucher
In our garden every year
for as long as I recall
we've had a hunt at Easter
when children have a ball
eggs hidden in strange places
whoops and shouts of joy
all these years in passing
from three girls and a boy

Easter’s Grace II

by Jem Croucher
Once some several years ago
In hallowed ground near here
I bowed and offered humber prayer
the beach and sea quite near
A little chapel on the shore
at Easter time at home
with crown of thorns up on the wall
for people to atone
And now as then on Saturday
the sun becomes the son
as at Easter his forgiveness
is complete for everyone

Easter Egg Hunt

by Jem Croucher

I’m devising an Easter egg hunt

it’s a giggle

as I had to squeeze into some spots

with a wiggle

too cunningly hide the eggs

with some guile

as my children have been at this

for quite a while

Easter unexpected

by Jem Croucher

Good Friday came up quickly

as it was in disguise

so the long weekend of Easter

kind of took me by surprise

Mind you it is a nice one

to get when least expected

four days to enjoy once more

most welcome and respected

Easter Memories

by scatterednotebooks

Poetry challenge: Easter poem.
We waited for the Easter Bunny
like we did for Santa Claus,
but he would bring the gift of spring
with his soft, little bunny paws.

We did the prep work hopefully
thinking nothing of the chore,
like colouring pretty Easter eggs
and decorations for the door.

Willingly for Me—Easter

by 50djohnson

Poetry challenge: Easter poem.


Type = ArtScans RGB : Gamma = 1.882


Christ willingly took upon himself your sins and mine that day.

In order that you and I would never pay what we deserved to pay.

In agony and pain He cried out ,”Father, forgive them, they know not what they do! ”

Even in death as His skin was scourged, His thoughts were of me and you.

Poetry Challenge: Easter poem


Shadow of a crown of thorns
high up on the wall
held there in a flickering light
sweetest thing I saw
Around me people quietly prayed
the Spirit, moving, felt
a whispered word, a silent prayer
shared as people knelt

Via Dolorosa

by Poetry and Literature by Sofia Kioroglou

Poetry challenge: Easter poem.


I see my Lord, the Way, the Truth and the Life
He moveth on wearing a crown of thorns, carrying a cross
I see my Lord crawling on the raggedy way leading to Calvary
the blood from his forehead smarting His eyes.

Easter Evening

by Peter Notehelfer

Jan Richardson

Jan Richardson

Our flawed feet
if left to themselves
will run in two ways at once
Run west away from what was
Run east back to what might be
So running we neither reach
where we’d be nor
where we were

“With Mary at the Tomb” Easter Prompt



The milk and honey poured from His

Perfect and tamed lips…


Resting upon the shore and distant hills

His eyes rescued the withering souls

Who cried out and spoke

Son of David!

in egg-yolk-yellow.
