Resurrection!Sister Laurentia Carroll OP
Sunrays reach out and touch
A world silent, still.
Waiting for this sign of hope
New birth, a new day begins.
A chorus fills the air.
The sounds of silence rent asunder
By roars, rants, shrieks, shrills,
Stutters, stammers, whispers, whimpers—
Intrude upon the earth.
Burst forth from branch and tree and stem,
A morning chorus—
Cacophony of sounds welcome
A new day.
Offering treasures from the deep wells—
Of life within.
Myriad colours, rainbow hues
Splashed on the canvas of our earth.
New day dawns, hopes formed
Aspirations and desires
Create dreams for tomorrows yet to be …
A partnership with the Divine,
I too must break, awake, unfold—call.
Begin each day to greet anew—
The life beginning within me
A new beginning for me—
