the day after easter
is when we still walk around radiant.
love has come to defeat death forever.
and love stays--to comfort, sanctify
and redeem all of the broken.
and don't wait.
and don't have.
what the full glory light will reveal
and somehow also know, now.
as i see my husband and child laugh together
as we stand as a family of the church
eating the bread
drinking the cup
that even though we wait
deep down, deep down:
it is finished.
