A silence reigned, before Abraham.
Blank heavens never spoke.
They just aged, above the clamor.
Holy Saturday. Christ entombed.
A second silence: a question.
Will heaven answer the Lamb’s final cry?
Vindication? Or just a dark maw,
arcing heedlessly to nothing at all?
Now, the unending Eighth Day, our Age of Grace,
silence speaks comfort, o lamb.
The Spirit speaks, because He lives.
The heavens say love.
