The What and Who of Meandering About

The Silence of Sabbatum Sanctum - a piece for Holy Saturday

Sometimes 
the silence is heavy. 
The fear 
has no place to
hide. 
The sorrow 
has nowhere to
go. 
And the soul
feels
empty. 

The promised
alleluia 
is coming. 
The silence 
will be broken 
by the vibrancy 
of life 
springing 
from the ground 
which once held it
captive. 

But
Today we
wait
in the quiet,
in the pain,
in the anguish,
in the void
of separation. 

Today we 
wait
in silence.
