Holy Saturday

tomb with stone in front

If we wait –
keeping vigil over the bones of our dreams,
parched from too many tears –
If we wait,
there’ll be a change,
a crackle,
a deep, distant boom;
a shift,
a drift of wind
that grows,
to roil around the tomb,
sweeping it clean.
Then rain –
blessed, sweet rain,
dancing across our dryness,
seeping deep down
to sleeping seeds,
loving them into life,
greening.If we wait,
the full will be emptied,
and the empty filled -if we wait long enough.
