No solace this day
the bereft morning is lost
in howling mourning

Our saviour is gone
God made flesh destroyed by man
Where did we go wrong?
Richard Farquarson

 

skin running with blood
bread and wine in the distance
clouds stained sunset-red
Tim Lenton

 

My God, my God, why?
Into the deep dark you went
To new life unknown
Mark Dowd

 

Good Friday, storm-tossed.
Ward 6. A torn curtain pulled
Around laboured breaths.
Lenore Beauregard

 

Burden hangs heavy
as Love chooses death, but wait,
from the tomb springs Life.
Sara Crowley


No moss on this stone
All of that rolling away
Must have rocked its world
Richard Littledale

 

Grave clothes are for sale
Suitable for recycling
One careless owner
Richard Littledale

 

Abracadabra
now you see him…now you do;
can’t see how it’s done

Such a mild winter
daffodils, too early, will
die before Easter
Bev Jones


Full, overflowing
the moon, a cup of anguish
then a tomb, empty

Walking home from church.
Cold inside. Then a child’s smile
Speaks resurrection.

We walked, we two, on
In dust, in fear, further on
He was right with us

Mary leaves the tomb
her hands full of light after
touching things unseen
Tim Lenton
