Easter 2016: A Poem

Almost 2000 years ago, a tomb stood empty.
Empty of its occupant.
And the news of that event spread outwards from Jerusalem all over the world.
And light and love entered human hearts.

Today humanity’s hearts seem to stand empty of that light and love.
We have all of us made our hearts as empty as that tomb.
The heart of humanity has become like a tomb- an empty tomb- empty of Christ.
Holman Hunt once painted a picture of Christ standing knocking at the door of our hearts .
Today it would be a picture of Mary Magdalene standing outside our empty hearts asking, “My Lord is gone. And I do not know where they have lain Him.”

Haiku About Easter Sunday

The tomb stands empty
rock unsealed and clothes on ground
Christ The Lord risen!
