Easter Monday

I have't tried to write poetry in a very long time, but here's what happened today:

Easter Monday
The day Good Friday
Re-enters the picture
After yesterday’s relentless

We’ve had our yearly glimpse
Into paradise
(at least we have tried)
Today earth-bound

Yesterday we told our pain
To flee away and
Some of us thought it did
And the feeling was

But it only takes 24 hours
For reality to return
And we are up against it
Struggling once more for

But here’s the good news
Friday’s Man of Sorrows
Is Monday’s Emmanuel
Ready to live with us again in

It is Easter faith, yes,
But we still are learning
How to sing at the grave
Through our tears
