EASTER

Easter is God lying on a park bench,

hungry, drunk, huddled against the cruel wind and the lashing rain.

Easter is a weeping, brick dust girl

watching as her family home is demolished in the West Bank

or a brave, silent protest

in the face of globalized thought control.

 

Easter is a church

that walks out one morning

from a stone and brick tomb

into the garden of the broken,

holds out the hand of God and says,

“Sister, brother, I see that you are hurting.

I have come to bring you

good news!”
