Egg Hunt

a grave refuses

Wide eyed lily
to a blind world.

Now the Blood spilled
is the Blood welling up
in forgiveness.

Spared despair, we crack eggs
in a bowl and wait,
as our not-a-ghost Guest takes
another minute
to wash the family’s feet.

  1. Thanks Will! I was in Trinidad having coffee today and hoping to see you. I like your poem and the “not-a-ghost Guest” idea. So true, we have a Lord that “Is” on this earth, not only “Was” on this earth. I pray for more wisdom to see this truth, and act upon it in my daily life. Christ is near! He is risen! He is Risen indeed! Mike
