Rise (Saturday in Easter Week)

           And He did;
though it breaks our minds,
           He did.
The tomb is empty,
           Peter’s face
white like linen;
           Mary smiles
and hearts are soon on fire; there’s
            no reason why
the broken, wounded,
            disappointed ones
should laugh
            and leap
and heal the sick
He burst forth from the tomb
            and said,
I am always with you,
            and breathed
His spirit into them;
some cosmic shift took place
all that we know is true,
He showed His hands and feet
            and said,
Now be my hands and feet,
the fiery risen Christ
            met them
in their homes and said
            Don’t fear,
unless He rose
           up from the grave
and conquered death –
           He did.
