Easter/Ascension/Pentecost

A re-post of a poem I used last year at this time, too:

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. Janet…lovely.
    we had a beautiful Easter…exactly what I had been praying for.
    now…I am exhausted–but happy down to my smallest toe.
    blessings
