Left us with Him, Alive
by Peter Menkin www.petermenkin.com

Christ is dead.

Those words remain,
reminding the reader,
reminding the rememberer
of the modern world.

Alas, to hear his words:
“Father, glorify me in your
own presence with
the glory that I had in your
presence
before the world existed.”
In my mind I hear
them as I read.

Takes the breath away,
like awaiting the risen Him,
recalling death, for he said,
It is finished.

Christ will
come
again. We say,
and live, wait,
celebrate the literal
example of renewal.

Spring.

Oh, horrible death.
Reminded of stations of the cross;
your suffering, Lord,
and giving, transfigures
mortals like us.

Grace.
