Happy Resurrection Day!

 A-Poem-a-Day Until Resurrection Day

Happy Resurrection Day!

I am featuring two poems today...



It’s Holy Saturday


Dough is rising

on the kitchen counter


filling me with thoughts

of rising


helium balloons

set free



over the Sea of Galilee


waking up




soap bubbles

floating skyward


seagulls soaring



booming and bursting


jet planes at take-off


rocket ships

with long trails of fire

zooming to the moon


O, but nothing




and no one


has ever done it


or will


…like Jesus

Some believe

the Body of Messiah was placed

in the highly venerated

tomb located in the Church

of the Holy Sepulcher


Some believe

He was buried

in a pastoral place

known as the Garden Tomb


The important thing is—

He died. He rose.

He’ll come again.


The important thing is

as a placard proclaims

at the entrance

to the Garden Tomb:


He is not here—

For He is risen


and the important thing is

our sins are atoned—


We live because He lives


so, let’s celebrate

that He was here—

but is not!




Praise be to Jesus, Our Risen Savior!
