Easter Sonrise!

Easter
New life,
Spring’s eternal promise
Strives to not ever
Leave us
Having only just to guess.

After a cold sleep
And winter’s death
Sweet Spring always brings
Earth’s bright regeneration
Our Hopes it never shuns.

Miniature blades of new grass,
Erupt from underneath
A hardened earth’s brown crust
In delicate tendrils, their fresh
Green beauty they each to all bequeath

Struggling, bursting through
Dark, tight skins of bark,
each trembling newborn leaf
sings of a perfect life renewed
as tree limbs reach to heaven.

New Babes come forth
On land, sky and the sea
Joy vibrating in sky’s air
Showing a Creator’s Power
To cause each new life to be.

I do not think
(I may be wrong)
No chance seems it to me
That Earth’s spring brings
each a new life within
a freshly resurrected King!

His frail dead body
Hanging on a lifeless tree
In shame and
ignorance of man
shows God’s always
most Immaculate of Plans.

Eternity on display
Upon a cross
Sent to cleanse
Destroy forever
Each soul’s darkest dross.

It cannot be by
a Mere Coincidence
That within each Earth’s Spring,
Fair Easter brings a Christ’s new life
Fulfilling our deepest need.

Thus through His death
we all receive
a heaven’s eternal life.
Is this not man’s most
Heartfelt song,
a bright Rebirth,
an end at last so final
to this decay of earth
in dark and woeful strife?

May you have a very blessed Easter. May the presence and love of Christ cover your day. Praise God!!
