Good Friday, 2013

Taking off my helmet and putting on another hat I offer up a little twist and a leaning toward something different than I usually post.

I get the cross
not all stories have happy endings
I get waiting in suffering
not accepting it exactly
rather waiting with it
watching hope 
evaporate slowly

The Gospellor called Mark
embraced waiting
closing his gospel
not with resurrection stories
but with an empty tomb
just emptiness.
Someone later
added a "real" ending
no waiting.

I'm waiting with Mark
and pondering
is this an ending
or a beginning?
I'm perched
sitting on a wrinkle in time
with no happy ending
with nothing
nothing but
