Easter Came

I wasn’t ready for Easter

But it came anyway

The stone had been in place

So long

The tomb was small

And lonely

But felt safe

In its own weird way

It is like that I suppose

We can get used to almost anything

Slavery in Egypt

Wandering in the desert

Waiting for instacart

To deliver the yogurt

And over-ripe bananas

Not the green ones

I would have selected

But Easter came

And a vaccine

Better than any chocolate egg

The stone was worn away

And the tomb open again

So I crawled out

Ready to be reborn

In fear and trembling

I wasn’t ready

But Easter came anyway

As it always does
