Easter: Christ is Risen! He is Risen Indeed!

An Angelic Host Matthew 28:1-8

I did not come to roll the stone away
for the Christ…
Risen, He no longer suffers such portals
He enters and leaves as He pleases
anywhere heaven or earth.

I came, a messenger, to the women.
I broke the seal on the empty tomb,
pushed the quarried stone aside for them.

I alighted there and waited their timid arrival,
A host preparing an amusement for cherished guests.
I radiated a smile to the uninvited guards,
they toppled over, seized with astonished regrets.

These women, however,
are woven of stronger stuff, the fiber of love.
They listened through their alarm,
overcame a fit of fright, and left inebriated with delight.

Task accompli, The surprise party a rousing success.
I rejoin the heavenly chorus to sing
a second stanza to “Peace on Earth, Goodwill to Men.”
It begins, “For He’s a Jolly God Fellow…Alleluia!
He is Risen! He is Risen Indeed!”

  1. Thanks, the artwork was done in our basement “workroom” as a fun activity sponsored by my husband for youth that hang out at local skate park prior to painting up the room. I took photos of what the kids did before he repainted.
