Easter/Ascension/Pentecost

He is risen,

            and life begins again.

He is risen,

            and light shines stark

                        Against uncomprehending dark.

The stone is rolled back;

            does it matter how?

                        and life transformed beckons.

Joy steps out

            from cave-blackness

                        and knows itself reborn.

And we will stand,

            looking up in wonder,

because one must, one must,

            and wonder what more wonder

                        can there be in store?

The flame will come

            and cast out fear

as perfect love must, we know,

and wind blow clear,

so set the sail,

for now begins the journey.

  1. Thank you for sharing this beautiful poem. I’m “wondering what more wonder,” myself, right now…

  2. Thanks for all your recent posts which I finally have caught up with (since St. Pat’s Day!) What a beautiful, thoughtful and clever writer you are. Consider self-publishing a book?

    • If I ever find a job and have disposable income again, maybe (although Roger tells me it doesn’t cost as much as it used to).
