Villanelle for Friday

It was the darkest hour of all days
The sky hung bruised
Jesus on a cross, crucified

His mother stood below in a daze
Sin of the world hung transfused
It was the darkest hour of all days

Death itself, an execution of praise
They killed “The King of the Jews”
Jesus on a cross, crucified

The world without the Father’s gaze
Perfection personified was not excused
It was the darkest hour of all days

The rip of the curtain amazed
From his side, blood and water oozed
Jesus on a cross, crucified

Earth could not contain the blaze
But justice could not refuse
It was the darkest hour of all days
Jesus on a cross, crucified
