Empty


Easter - Year C 

Empty

so late in time
what seemed like evening
was finally remembered
as beginning
and there was evening
and morning

darkness before dawn
is the longest dark
we lose track of one another
and no night-vision goggle
can see ahead in time
or move a stone

the lost are lost
and gone gone gone
there is no understanding
mystery is mystery
emptiness means theft
emptiness brings weeping

emptiness precedes hearing
no matter how focused our eye
it is the echo of our name
that calls us back
to see what is
in front of us anew

from emptiness
we let go
with emptiness
we go
in emptiness
we meet
