Week’s First Day

 
This virgin chamber                        
like rock-hollowed stable 
is a briefly borrowed room.
 
The table chiseled 
to lay linen-wrapped dead 
today becomes a birthing bed.
Earth travails.  A shudder 
breaks sealed silence
of womb-dark tomb.
 
Like lightning, attending angels
split death’s gloom to witness 
this resurrection morn— 
the cavern’s mouth is opened.
The triumphant King is born!
