Easter may have just passed again, but the message of Easter remains strong. so for our Weekend Inspiration this week, we have one of our Lorraine wonderful poems called:
EASTER SHADE AND SHADOWS
Easter began with the shadows cast of three wooden crosses, sunrise,
dawn sky reflecting in purple, bruised black clouds shading earth.
The body imprinted, stained with ancient blood, did flow to show sin dies,
where land trembled at a deed done and deepest darkness gave birth.
Shades of ruby and gold that lit trees and people crowds sat to wait
on dry, brown, dusty dirt between huddles of awe, some feeling pain
at the hanging from hewn splintered trunks of the disciple sentenced
by and judged without trial, by a decree that seemed to echo as not sane,
a prisoner, abandoned, abused, beaten and cruelly presented.
In the heat of the day, nailed between two others, he bled,
weakening, as water leaking from his wounds, was shed.
He was dead. The skies stormed a great blackness, until a hush
descended as people left in silence, with grief their hearts harsh.
The keening swept across the shadowed hills but a lone call sang,
‘Remember this day forever, the saviour of souls has paid this price
for all, his death will never fail sinners evermore.
The shadowed cross will always be here. Drink from his cup of sacrifice
and of eternal love every year’. And the people answered ‘AMEN_AMEN
SO IT WAS AND SO IT IS FOR EVERMORE
