by Bela Cikos Sesija, Croatia

In solemn waiting

moving from darkness to light, sadness to joy, despair to hope

The Paschal candle will be lit at nightfall…

…out of darkness, let us follow the light of truth…resurrection of life…

PURPLE

Purple Robe and Anemones 1937 by Henri Matisse

FREE VERSE POEM

MY JESUS

STANDING BEFORE THE ROMAN GUARDS

I SEE MYSELF IN A PURPLE ROBE

AMONG MANY I CAUSED YOUR AGONY, YOUR DEATH

YOUR BLOOD-STAINED ROBE FORESHADOWED YOUR ROYAL KINGSHIP AND RESURRECTION

BECAUSE OF YOU, NOW MY LIFE AMENDED

I SEE MYSELF IN YOUR PURPLE ROBE
