A competition where contestants are asked to compose a poem saying what easter means to them.
Contestants, please be aware of my rules and the rule guidelines. As, I will not allow party-poopers and forfeiters. On another note here are my guidelines:

1. Must submit a/ the poem(only if you choose to participate, if not pop off)
2. Rhythm
3. Must discuss what easter means to you(It can't talk about anything else or you will not succeed nor be one of the  successful hopefuls. I will make sure of that. )
* In return, good luck and make Queen Kawaii proud*

Ostara

When you think earth has died,
She has been fertizled,
Gods of sun and moon will shine.
Humans come out to play,
Rabbits all breed away,
Coming December, this child of mine.

He is Risen

One day your riding into town
On an donkey, with the crowd cheering
Representing the hope
This could be great, but its not. ( Mathew 21:1-17) Palm Sunday

Five days later
You are carrying a cross
With the crowds calling for your death
This could be sad but its not (John 19:16-42) Good Friday

Save our people ( Jeremiah 31:7)
Thinking small
Taking away the sins of the world †(John 1:29)
That is beyond comprehension

Overcoming death (John 11:25-26) †HAPPY EASTER
That's eternity
Matthew 28:6

When the Bunny Hops Back Around

Easter means the end of
Lent which means I can
Finally drink after a long
40 days and nights, but
Will I finish the leftover
Vodka and Pilsner in the
Fridge or will I switch to
Single malt and red
Zinfandel like I said I
Would? Or will I take the
3rd option and perhaps
Stop for good?

And of course, mom will
Invite me over for Easter
Dinner to choke down
Overdone turkey and burnt
Stuffing with heavy gravy washed
Down with sugary sparkling
Apple cider

But it will be the booze Iím
Thinking of the most because
Although Iím looking and
Feeling better, Iíve been
Bored and with only one
Life to live and no other
Options to consider, the
Corner store starts looking
Like an old friend you havenít
Seen in a while who itís high
Time you paid a visit to

All my eyes can † †

speak into existence † †  
Lord your word... † †
He came to save us all... † †
† †  
He is risen as he said † †
come and see the place † †
where he lays  
He is risen as he said † †
went and opened † †  
the heaven gates  
† †  
He is risen... † †
HE IS RISEN... †

Jesus the saviour † †  
of the earth... † †

with His stripes

infinite love  
gift-wrapped in burial clothes  
unblemished sacrifice  
upon the altar  
born to a world of  
beastly offal stench  
Good Shepherd  
midst His lost sheep seeking shelter  

a lowly feeding trough  
cradles the King  
a feast of slight appeal  
to gluttony  
Lamb to the slaughterhouse  
of brutal men  
persona non grata  
dark litany  

a cup that will not pass  
by Sovereign Will  
till every bitter drop  
congeals the blood  
a crown whose thorns must first  
impale His brow  
a sword whose blade must spill  
His vital flood  

He fancies not my gold  
this King of Heaven  
this Babbling Infant  
soon my Royal Priest  
sweet alabaster frankincense  
i bring  
to season up  
the Sacrificial Feast  

with myrrh embalmed for  
vile Jerusalem  
no beauty that we should  
desire Him  
we hide our faces from  
His solemn grief  
yet Agape would  
thus inspire Him  

His cradle is His grave  
no lullaby  
has future agony  
from Him concealed  
wounded for our transgressions  
torn and bruised  
that with His stripes  
the broken may be healedÖ
