Contemplating Easter

Life does not always carry with it what we expect.  The trick is to recognize Easter here... wherever here is.   Oh yes, we say, oh yes, even here the sun shines through the window, makes a puddle of light on the floor.  Even here the tomb is empty.

The blue and sun enter
Even such sterile places.
We have been here before
And know the life;
It permeates even here,
Maybe especially here.
The tomb is empty.
We have been here before.
We may be here again.
We practice Easter
Four days in
Hear the laughter.
It rolls like so many stones
Large and small,
from the empty tomb,
Even here.
