Thunderstorms and the In-Between
Heat — Oppressive and ruthless;
Rain — Cool and refreshing;
a South Georgia day hangs in the balance.
On one side
Death — cruel, blistered, scorched, dried up;
On the other
Life — saturated, washed, cleansed, made new;
the tension of an afternoon,
the tension of life itself.
Like Saturday wedged between
Friday’s Cross and
Sunday’s Empty Tomb.
Death behind us and Life before us
Yet we wait in-between…
