Easter: a day or two later

the fallen arches

on which we’ve been walking

RISEN!

our fallen rates

of interest in living

RISEN!

the fallen bridges

we haven’t been crossing

RISEN!

the fallen stars

that gave up on shining

RISEN!

the fallen prey

of all our thanksgiving

RISEN!

RISEN!

the line graph plotting profits

shoots up

off the charts

out the board room

through the roof

of the high-rise towers

tickling heaven

whence angels fall

laughing their holy heads off

at the perfect punchline

so long awaited…

so impeccably timed.

Greg Kennedy, SJ is assigned to the spiritual exercises ministry at the Ignatius Jesuit Centre in Guelph, Ontario.
