Waiting for Communion Holy Saturday

What did Jesus’ disciples do, or more, how did they feel on that dark Saturday after Jesus’ was crucified?

In response to my long remembered emptiness, grief, disbelief, and irrational hope the day after my dad’s death, I imagined being one of the disciples and this response.

Neil Berg’s rock opera The 12 imagines that day not as quiet but filled with fear, fighting, doubt, and love. Berg has Peter, Mary Magdalene, John, and the others express their grief through powerful rock and roll music.

Finding God’s Grace in an Aspen Grove

 

Above me aspens climb the sky

Knobbly fingers intertwine

Creating a lattice of quivering lace

Painting yellow hue on cobalt face

Cobalt Blue

Heart-shaped leaves collect the sun

Phosphorescence of the One

Throwing sparks of gentle light

Scattering dreams, kites in flight

Aspen Canopy

Golden coins dance the swirling wind

Carefree, despite facing certain end

Laughing, landing done with toil

Surrendering to fertile soil

Leaves on the ground

Leafless trunks now sway together

Dark eyes watchful of foul weather

Raising branches in hope bare

Regenerating for another year

Trunks

Round me boles slant pale and stark

Picturesque, powdered bark

Touching their smooth, tender skin

Gaining God’s grace once again

Surrounded by Friends
