Good Friday by Nancy Rakoczy


death is a door

Love entered for us,

removing the locks

and gave us the key.


In death’s fiery furnace

Love’s waiting there;

truth’s heavy sword

cuts heart soul and mind.


death’s raging fire

is Love’s cleansing flame:

the victim no victim

outwitting the dark.


in death’s scribbled book

the world’s sorrows writ large, 

Love restores chapters

wrest from death’s left hand.


to death’s extreme answer

comes Love’s firm reply:

new life springs up

midst the dust smoke and ash.


Love’s final question   

demands our reply:

can sorrow get peace

will peace replace ire?
