Easter Morning

Easter morning
from a sound sleep
knowing today
would be special–
Easter Sunday morning–
but as I sit
to ponder the great mystery
I am overwhelmed
and confused
Easter changes everything
but today there will still
be little crucifixions
all over the world
today there will be suffering
from separations
from illness
from greed and bitterness
and yet it is Easter
the mystery event
of rising from the dead
a feast where
we ponder death and life
and end up knowing
life wins
one way or another
I’m waiting for it
to change
in my little world
Easter changes everything
This I know to be true.
