Easter Candle Shadows   Leave a comment

On the afternoon of Easter Sunday, April 21, 2019, my front door was open.  Sunlight cast shadows against a wall, creating shadows of burning taper candles.  I noticed the flickering of the reflections of the flames and took this photograph.

Rush Not Into Easter

+++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

Rush not into Easter;

let Jesus remain dead

liturgically for

slightly longer.  He said

+++++

that he would rise again–

as he did so long ago.

On him our hopes we pin–

and salvation also.

+++++

Easter will arrive on

schedule quite soon enough.

Until then think upon

his death painful and rough.

+++++

Then, when Easter is here,

rejoice spiritually

and observe and adhere

to the season gladly,

+++++

keeping Easter fifty

days–through Pentecost–

and marking time holy,

grateful for its high cost.
