Easter

The hearts and minds of the sheep and lambs
Burned within when he spoke to them on the road
Nothing could stop the march of Easter
To the depths of soul and the ends of earth

Easter

By Joe Palathunkal
When
The world stood around an empty tomb
Peering into it and staring at it with finger on chin
Easter was dawned with a soft glow of light
Over the cross in the darkness of Calvary
And the empty tomb began to fill
Every emptiness in our life.

When
Simple people who followed him
To bear and dare the cross he promised
Easter marched through the human history
Causing the fall of thrones and sceptres
Raising the people into nations
Who had dared to go into the empty tomb
When Pilates and Pharisees stood in guard.
And a song rippled through the Hughly
Into the empty space
Echoing a question to the ones
Looking into it with ‘wonder-full’ eyes:
“What emptiness do you gaze upon!
Do you not feel a thrill passing through the air
With the notes of the far away song
Floating from the other shore?”

When
The hearts and minds of the sheep and lambs
Burned within when he spoke to them on the road
Nothing could stop the march of Easter
To the depths of soul and the ends of earth
Breaking barriers and boundaries everywhere,
Even in wilderness and the wilds.

But when
He broke the bread and gave to them
Easter burst into a song
From every tear and every fear
Heralding to the whole world
That the empty tomb is full of life,
Life that gives
Life to all in fullness and abundance
Who dare to rush to the empty tomb
Against the darkness
Along the rugged way!
