An Easter poem to share with you...
whence
           death birthed life
           defeat rendered triumph
           doubt begat belief
           darkness became light
           fear was replaced by trust
                         and
            falseness yielded to truth

thence
           valleys push up mountains
           storms succumb to calm
           barren twigs bear blossoms
           silence is broken by birdsong
           revenge is displaced by forgiveness
                            and
           hatred crumbles before love

  hence
           may the undaunted easter
           transformation be manifest
           in the love i give to you
           this day and always

What is there to say, but ~ Beautiful. You soul shines through. Thinking of you as you remember what Holy Saturday means to you.

Bill was quite the poet! Beautiful, thank you for sharing it! Easter has always had the most significance to me for what Christianity means to me.
