A Poem for Holy Saturday (Revised)

A poem for Easter
A poem for Easter

I hope you have a meaningful Easter. I hope you experience the richness of the Story - the movement from darkness and death towards light and life.

Smack in the middle of all this comes Holy Saturday. I wrote a poem on Holy Saturday a few years back - here is a newly revised version.



And this holy Saturday is
An elastic band, stretched taut
A kingdom held back
just one more day
propulsion potential


The hand
calms the waves
The voice
stills the voices


Not yet,
not yet
But soon
and then ... oh, then!


You will let fly the smile of love
To the back of the head


But not yet


The band may yet break
The dark is still pregnant
A belly stretched taut
