Easter Morning


Royal color. Bent with the weight of an evening snow.
Brought low, broken, pressed to the ground.
Covered in white. Motionless. Waiting for morning light.

A King. Bent by the weight of our sins.
Humiliated, broken, pressed to the cross.
Wrapped in white. Motionless. Waiting for morning light.

Dawn breaks.

Amid the snow-melt we find the linen clothes lying.
Next to the rolled stone, burdened petals now free.

My mother's purple crocuses.
The Resurrection and the Life.

"I am the Resurrection and the Life. He who believeth on Me, though he were dead, yet shall he live." - John 14:25
