Poems on the Trinity

In the weeks following Pentecost 2023, I wrote a series of poems that celebrate the Trinity.

The website Jericho Writers has a lovely article explaining various different poetry forms, with examples. This series explores some of them.

There are a number of symbols used for the Trinity; the featured images show a portion of a triquetra.

(I also have poems specifically celebrating the Holy Spirit, which can be used at Pentecost – see them here.)

Picture by me. Made using Procreate.
