Good writing, with a strong point and with life oozing out.

Holy Saturday

April 21, 2019

it’s quiet
still
lonely
there are no more prayers to pray
nothing to do but wait
for death, for life
for more questions
for the scent of hope
for some relief

aching for easy answers
and a happy ending
yet knowing they will never come
sitting in this new normal
the doors shut tight

for this one holy day
each year
all of the glad-handers
well-wishers
and anxious souls
who ask the question,
“So are you better?”
(which only has one possible answer)
will finally leave us alone

all of us,
waiting
for morning
