2015.04.03: long before … in a garden

Pilate answered, “What I have written, I have written.” Jn 19:22

long before the arrogant words
humility was spoken in a garden

long before the unjust sentence
a yoke was freely accepted in a garden

long before the jeers of rejection
a choice was freely made in a garden

long before Peter’s denials
love poured out unconditionally in a garden

long before Judas’s betrayal
a father abandoned his son in a garden

long before this act of obedience
disobedience arose in another garden
