It’s nearly April
Spring is around the corner
Or is it here already –
Now and not yet
in Nature’s domain.
See, I’m doing a new thing; don’t you perceive it?
From prophetic Jesse’s branch
The dry bones grown flesh
Ezekiel’s desert army
starts its March.
Like a bunny.
Life from the soil
Daffodils from bulbs
Dormant hopes we buried
Burst out in trumpets of gold.
Nature reawakens in anticipation
Leave your hibernation, learn to live again!
Easter is coming – Chinese: Fuhuojie
The literal Back to Life Festival
Where body and blood
And Death itself starts working backwards…
“This is no thaw,” said the dwarf, suddenly stopping. “This is Spring. What are we to do? Your winter has been destroyed, I tell you! This is Aslan’s doing.”
– CS Lewis, The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe
