Poem based on The Resurrection of our Lord Luke 24:1-11

In the Spring
I would come out to that place
with the stream flowing
fast clear through the narrows
of the mud
and snow choked hills
The sun would shine warm
and send light bouncing off the water
as it flowed
through the mud
and snow
the sun’s rays felt good
on my ice cold hands
as I enjoyed the beauty
of new life beginning

In the beginning God created all
and it was good
From nothingness came good
and beauty
and joy
tarnished by the desire of us all
to be gods
to run our little dominion
And we did
And we died
And Christ came
in our self appointed winter
confined not to the cold
and dead dungeons of our world
and sprang forth in light and life
to a world made new
As in the beginning
where life
in the midst of our dungeons
burst forth
sparkling in the waters that flow
through the mud and snow clogged narrows
of our soul
To bring us
