Resurrection

23easter-lily

God,

Sometimes

We’re as tightly bound

As Lazarus

In a tomb:

Unseeing

Unfeeling

Unmoving.

Then,

In our bondage

You send

Another

To help free us;

A friend

Who believes

And rolls the stone away.

Unbound,

Enabled to emerge

From the caves of our making,

Our eyes are opened

To see your loving face.

We are released –

Resurrection!
