Markings 103 - Easter 2018

Easter 2018

Easter Sunday

Under the great blue bell

of morning sky

old Rex is out early again

pushing his ancient red tractor

rattling out of dawn

and towing the day

ploughing up a green hill

painting it brown

somewhere on the Baptist church

a dull clapper for the town

but here

hundreds of mottled pigeons fall in

behind the song

and scansion of his shears.

Jeff Guess

Good Friday

After all the stories

the rusted on

concretions of two

embellished centuries:

there was a death,


a crude cruel


After that

a small

fearful huddle

of whispering

and tears.

And then a going back

to dark

and silent houses

each heart

a tomb

filled with

his final words.
