Easter, 2009

I tried writing
an Easter verse,
but—

my pencil
burst into blooming;
the page leafed greenly;
and a bird
took to singing
from inside my coffee mug.

Resurrection
can do that to a poem,
it can.

Alleluia!

Love it!

Thank you! It was not the poem I anticipated writing, but so moved the Spirit. Rather like thinking you are planting a tulip and having an iris pop up instead. Both lovely gifts.

Happy Easter, Joyous Spring!
