A Soul On Holy Saturday

    A Soul On Holy Saturday

Between the death and rising,
Descending to the pit,
Where masses wait surmising
Which spirit-life is it,
He downward falls to meet them,
Has joined the lost and torn,
And shines a light to greet them,
A path to find the morn,
And scattering the darkness,
The deep and empty void,
He shatters stiff and starkness
Where spirit lay destroyed,
He heals the broke and burdened
With yet a lighter yoke,
And all within is softened
Just as the heart awoke,
He rises in the morning
Above the bleeding land,
And every soul in mourning
Is lifted by His hand.

About the Poet
Husband, father, grandfather, and each title is my joy. As a youth, poetry was a means to express the inexpressable. I was attracted to (and still am) the beauty and brevity of verse. All flows out from God, and like a proper prayer, can flow back.
