Stained Glass Butterfly Haiku


Version I

Jesus shouted, 'Eli Eli lama sabachthani? ' which is, 'My God, my God, why have you forsaken me? '

It is finished...
a stained glass butterfly
circles in my mind


Version II

Jesus said, “Father, forgive them, for they do not know what they do.”

It is finished...
a stained glass butterfly
circles in my mind


Note: L1 refers to Jesus’ last words on the cross.
