Holy Saturday

the day between, the breath
separating great sorrow and great joy
a moment of anticipation
a sigh of relief before the climax--
but to know it wasn't so
that the sorrow continued for not one
day or hour of devotional
but two long agonizing orbits
around the sun believing
that all Hope was lost, was buried
in a tomb
and then to feel the immeasurable
shock, denial, and finally
Immense Joy
touching holy hands and side
gazing at His face
that darkness can never
penetrate Light
