of Crosses and Bunnies


Relentless rains have chilled the air

To douse the earth

To nourish the soil for plants to be born

Yet St Peter played fair

And sent sunshine on Easter Sunday morn'

To delight countless children and their mamas

Bedecked with bonnets or in simple clothes

People step out in droves

To church, to church

To Brunch or lunch

At Grandma's or in the park

To celebrate Jesus Christ

Or simply  to follow tradition

Or both

It is a joyous occasion

Whether you think of religion

Or of springtime's new hope

A beginning ...a resurrection

A symbolic time of fertility around the globe

There is the Easter Bunny

Revered long before Christ

For the way it survives and thrives

Baby bunnies hopping forth

And so it still goes...never a dearth

New grass greens

Trees are in bloom

No matter the politics, economics,

The laws and taxes crammed down our throats

Nature reminds us of all that truly matters:

Renewal, high spirits, the cheer a child's joy brings

The smile on your loved one's face

The fragrance of the lily of the valley

The lilac nodding over the fence

The aroma of coffee and warm toast

The soothing cool water

Balm to your throat

Everyone has his own cross to bear

No one truly can obey the ten commandments

And love his neighbor and turn the other cheek

By that token, we're all sinners

Still, we seek

To be good and kind

That's what matters most...

Let other people do their worst

But, you do your best!

Some things may change

Some things may look grim

But all that gloom

And all that fear

Can't take away

The joy of life

That is still here.

 

Happy Easter!

Gina

PS: Not to forget the beautiful tiny violets and the golden dandelions! They are in full bloom, together with red tulips...my own delights.

Happy Easter Gina, Jasmin Horst

An Easter blessing come to your readers, Gina--thanks.

And ah, the sight of daffodills--they don't bloom here in Texas, like they did in Georgia, and I never cared for yellow--but when I close my eyes and see those acres of daffodills...you're right. Nature and God are linked, and no matter our beliefs, or names for them--we're richer for them.

Happy Easter,
Leslie
