The Sacrifice

His son on a slab

He sobbed, raising the knife high

Angel staid his hand

*This haiku, as many may know, was inspired by the story of Abraham and Isaac from The Bible’s Old Testament.  It’s fascinating how The Holy Bible contains such dark and twisted stories.  Who needs a Stephen King novel or The Grimm’s Fairytale?
