I have seen the stone rolled
sealing the Saviors tomb
heaviness and darkness of sin
atonement of mercy, as I walk
lifes trail or probation, trial of
polishing, fear and trembling
in finishing, mold of holiness
which image is our Maker:
July 11, 1991, Central Park, San Jose
Costa Rica, the splendor of day
turned into night, the sun eclipsed
by the moons orb, only a thin ring
of brightness, around the border
beyond that door, then December 21
2010, Palmares, Alajuela, the earth
in its ellipse, perfectly darkened
in reddest hue, the lunar disk
in its fullness, as starlit deepness
looked on, symbol of the Plan, love
that we may understand, as celestial bodies
in their turning, opened anew that tomb
filling my sky with light.
