“Haiku: Palace” by Rick Sanders

Gilead Hils

Gilead Hills (Photo credit: Wikipedia)

Palace loved by God

fell to the idols worshipped

and covenant lost.

 

Note: This haiku takes its inspiration from Jeremiah 22:6-9.

Jeremiah 22:6

For thus saith the LORD unto the king’s house of Judah; Thou art Gilead unto me, and the head of Lebanon: yet surely I will make thee a wilderness, and cities which are not inhabited.

Jeremiah 22:7

And I will prepare destroyers against thee, every one with his weapons: and they shall cut down thy choice cedars, and cast them into the fire.

Jeremiah 22:8

And many nations shall pass by this city, and they shall say every man to his neighbor, Wherefore hath the LORD done thus unto this great city?

Jeremiah 22:9

Then they shall answer, Because they have forsaken the covenant of the LORD their God, and worshipped other gods, and served them.

Authorized of King James Version
