On Saturday


The birds don’t know
it’s the silent day
after Good Friday,
before Sunday comes.

It seems all earth should be waiting
in a slow, silent inhale
ready for dawn’s hallelujah.

But the birds don’t care.

Their song greets the morning with joy
and says to me–
You don’t have to wait till tomorrow
to celebrate.

He is risen indeed–
just as He said.

Thanks be to God who gives us the victory.
