My Easter Sermon - March 31, 2024

a jackpot rainbow!

see it early yesterday?

ribbons of glorious joy

added to my soul’s wealth


easily comprehended

as the play of sun on rain

just a simple mystery

for such a great return


while today marks

an emergence eons ago

from darkness and dirt 

one life rising out of a grave


so incomprehensible

I fall back to yesterday’s

tiny enigma of color bands

bridging the mountain


perhaps like the chocolate

bunnies and colored eggs

the kids turn to when that

miracle is too large to swallow


it’s also White party weekend

and I hear Ralph’s

is selling out six-packs


thank God I don’t drink
