lenten journal: on the road to the resurrection

on the road to the resurrection

I will pass a marker tomorrow
eight months since dad died

they’ve planted grass now
my mother goes to water it

not so long after easter
even with an empty tomb

nine months will come and go
soon we’ll be talking years

for now I will find solace
in the sadness of this first

bluebonnet spring without
a chance to talk baseball

or to send him a snickers
egg to say Christ is risen

Peace,
Milton
