HE IS NOT HERE

Empty burial rooms, splendor
of souls ascended, flowers
wilted, boughs bent, vacant
valley of death, we seek the living
“He is not here” He has risen
walls of prisons, mortal cells fell
corrupted flesh, dust and rubble
earthly power troubled, broken
marble vaults, bronze vase
first light of dawn to marvel.
