Welcoming Spring


It is good

to be in darkness

where visions have fled

and dreams are stilled.

For there,

where only silence and emptiness live,
the soul sleeps, resting,
until the breath of God
Stirs in the shadows,
beckoning life.
And then,
having absorbed the darkness,
we rise, healed and renewed,
to face and embrace the world’s pain
with mercy and compassion.

(Edwina Gateley. Easter 2016)
