The Savior

Nina M. Hagen-Fleck
[nina.hagen-fleck@thewritegallery.com]



On

the

day

he

died

The sky turned black

And the world cried out

Yet

he

was

back

by

the

third

day.

Amen.

Author Notes

           This piece was actually written in June of 2000 as a summer school assignment; I was required to write a concrete poem as part of the poetry segment of a creative writing course. The idea of writing a poem about the death of Christ in the shape of the symbol closely associated with it seemed so highly logical at the time. I doubt it has not been done before. I cannot explain why I chose those specific words (a phenomenon with which I'm sure most writers can identify), but once I saw the poem on paper, it all made sense.
