Waiting for Communion on Holy Saturday


The room is silent

Like the hearts of those

Who saw Him hung

And the stone rolled over


In gray morning light

 I remember the last night


We gathered round

A table piled high

With bread and wine

And hope


I sit and wait

For life to stir

His voice to fill the room

And touch my fearful heart
