Treasure Island

Valsa George


The Great Saga of Love


Born in a manger
Swaddled in rags
Amid the bleats of lambs
‘A bastard’ in some eyes
But the clone of Clones
Halved History
Though Heaven sent,
Lived like a man

Walked the hills of Judea
With disciples many
Healed the sick
Met people
Lived one among them
Until three decades
And three years

The cloud laden sky
Suddenly darkened
The spirit of darkness
Invaded
Inside
And outside
Premonitions! !
Of portentous occurrence!
At Gethsemane
The fatal rendezvous,
Sweated blood
As coins tinkled,
Through a kiss
Betrayed
Convicted by the Marshals of power
Was sentenced
Pontius Pilot, washing hands,
Absolved himself of his guilt

Tottered to Calvary,
Lay on the cross
Not by nails
But pinned by love

Among the hisses of revulsion
And the screams of a vengeful crowd
The tremulous cadence
Of an agonized cry
“Why hast Thou forsaken me? ”
Died down
While the Father kept ‘an aggressive silence’

The Sun (Son) set at noon
Darkness shrouded the Earth

The curtain fell

But,

On the 3rd day
Walked out of the grave
Defeating Death and Sin!

To this day
The world
Hails this victory! !

In every Christian kind of place.... Read complete »
