Trinity Haiku, poem


“But you shall receive power when the Holy Spirit has come upon you; and you shall be witnesses to Me in Jerusalem, and in all Judea and Samaria, and to the end of the earth." - Acts 1:8

Jeff Shrowder, 2016

No easy concept:
three in one and one in three –
it makes my head pop.

Three persons in one,
Father, Son, Holy Spirit:
but where is Jesus?

His gospel subsumed
in a grand theology,
and too often lost.

If I sound confused
I am surely not the first
nor even the last.

Come Holy Spirit, fill the hearts of your faithful and kindle in them the fire of your love. Send forth your Spirit and they shall be created. And You shall renew the face of the earth. O, God, who by the light of the Holy Spirit, did instruct the hearts of the faithful, grant that by the same Holy Spirit we may be truly wise and ever enjoy His consolations, Through Christ Our Lord, Amen.
