“With Mary at the Tomb” Easter Prompt

by I HAVE A VOICE

Chirst-appearing-to-Mary-Magdalene_unknown

The milk and honey poured from His

Perfect and tamed lips…

 

Resting upon the shore and distant hills

His eyes rescued the withering souls

Who cried out and spoke

Son of David!

My hands cup to catch the sundry

Raindrops of truths, I sip…

 

Quiescent and leaning upon a boulder

I feel His eyes collect me upwards

And with one soft sweeping

I praise the empty grave!
