Easter Mystery

New Annunciation

To Mary, in the Night of the Pasch

It was the inrush of heaven

vibrant with life,

(no angel visitation this),

joy’s inflow swelling the flood

of love, love’s banks breaking,

(It was wonder),

heaven rushing in

with new life and warmth,

(He like new minted gold

fresh from fire).

It was power, gentle yet strong

(wonder, pondered anew).

Suddenly in the dark silence

joy singing, and light.

It was morning.
