The Cross – A Cinquain

I’ve been struggling to post very often lately, and starting this week I’m taking on another responsibility as a Bible study small group leader. It occurred to me that I could embrace my love of short-form poetry and thereby continue to post with some regularity. And so here is a cinquain for today.

The Cross

The cross
around my neck
Instrument of mercy
The solution to my dismay
My hope

About Linda Kruschke

I am a Jesus Freak, and I don't care who knows it. I am a wife, mother, sister, aunt, daughter, and friend. My blood family is only part of the larger family of Christ that I belong to. I love to write, especially about my dear Savior.

  1. Your comment reminded me that I haven’t visited here in a while so I thought I would stop by. I’m glad I did. What a simple and powerful cinquain! I love it. Would you mind if I use it at school? (I’m a history teacher at a Christian school and I always put a quote or poem or something on the board in the morning).

    • Deb, I’m so glad it was a blessing. I am still amazed at how the Lord has drawn out the poet in me over the past few years, and it all started from me reading your simple poems of grace and truth. 🙂 Peace, Linda

    Lovely poem. Good decision. After all, Linda, the blogoshere is a world of sound-bites anyway. Good luck with your class.
