why I preach

By Jeff Rainwater, Easter 2017, Cheyenne, Wuyoming

New life
surprises.

Mountain vales
suddenly greening.
Shattered relationships
miraculous mending.
A lost life (sometimes mine)
graciously turning.

Look here,
when did that
happen?

Astonished,
I stand in awe
in front of another
empty tomb, awaiting
the voice of One Reborn:
Go on now…
Tell the others.
Such news is
too good to
remain a
secret.
