Easter Dawn

Dawn amongst the clouds

Easter dawns – 

A new day

A new promise

A new hope

The Son beams –

Rays of resurrection

Rays of revelations

Rays of restoration


Nothing is the same 

As it has been.


Death is overcome! 

Ashy bodies fill with breath!

All is made new!


We walk

Into the light

Into transformation 

Into wholeness.
