Good Friday/Passover/Easter

 

Last night, I slept
with one window
open       wide
to lull me
to Rest
after days of Torment.

I awoke at Noon,
my body    if not my mind,
Refreshed.

Today is Good Friday,
the Terrible Day
Our Lord Jesus
was crucified
on the Cross.

Today is Passover,
the day Our Lord Jesus
also remembered
God’s Saving Grace
from the hands of the Oppressor
who threatened
his people’s
very Lives.

How is it, then,
that I feel Love for
Christians and Jews
equally,
But with no allegiance
to either’s
History/Religion/Culture?

Reverence? Yes.
But not allegiance.

My God Is
Greater than all
our frail human piety.

He Is The One
Who made us All.
Who gave us myriad
windows
wide               open
through which to
see and know Him.

Who are we
to believe that
the view we are given
is the Only True one?

May we all
Praise Our God
in Unison,

Amen.
