Questioning on Good Friday

Light Against Church Wall

Asking Joseph of Arimathea

Who of us
has not gone
stone-blind, sealed
to the thought
of another day
where wounds
would be closed as tight
as this tomb,
who of us
has remembered
to wait...
to stay.

Thanks Gordon, for inspiring me to this poem.

Mary Asked Martha

It is that waiting in the midst of suffering and loss that is so difficult.
