A poem for Easter: Happy Easter!

One fascinating fact about Easter that is telling, is the wonderful role women play in the Easter story. I wanted to emphasize this wonder, so this poem.

Easter Poem
By Peter Menkin

Sharing The Year Long Vigil, Awake--Easter.
The empty tomb, surprised Mary, who,
greeted by an angel of illumined white light,
looked for Him.

Desperate love,
where have you taken Him?
The gardener is asked.
I wonder is the gardener He.

I have met women, who,
wait and go to visit the tomb discovering
He is risen.

These women meet Easter, glory,
third day joy of happiness.
Theirs is vigil, awake.
We share this mystery--love.
