A Poem to Sit With
Friday of the Lord’s Passion
(Good Friday)

J. Janda

Who would believe what we have heard?
To whom has the arm of the LORD been revealed?
(First Reading)

The dream ...

The dream

lived out
in
darkness

following
uncertain
roads

wondering
with
each step
if
oneself is
one’s
own fool

to journey
in directions
angels
indicated

or did they?
