A Haiku For Good Friday

The April Heights – Day 6. The prompt for today is ‘Hope’. I’m grateful to Ramesh Sood for the idea for the layout of these Haiku.

hope faded today,
blinded by futility –
a lost tomorrow

a lost tomorrow,
shattered dreams all around –
mankind lost forever

mankind lost forever,
a whirlpool of self loathing –
searching for a sign

searching for a sign,
a gentle man stepped forward –
mistrust cut him down

mistrust cut him down,
nailed him to a cross of thorns –
hope faded today

  1. Traditionally this was the last day with no hope. Your haiku expresses that so well. Thank goodness that despair was lifted very soon.

I look forward to reading your comments
