A reminder of resurrection
is good for anyone.
You don't have to be Christian
to resurrect love from the trash of resentment,
to raise up a dream buried deep in old pain.
You don't have to be Pagan to celebrate spring,
the return of the world from winter.
This is a good time to write a poem.
Lots of other small and newborn things
are stumbling about on tender shaking legs.
This is a good time to paint
if you have never painted,
always wanted to paint,
now while buds are beginning to color the branches
and haven't decided yet what color to be.
Now is the time to say hello to a stranger,
when the sky is just remembering its color,
when the sun is learning to fly all over again.
Now is the time to say hello to a lost friend.
You don't have to be dead
to come back to life.
