Easter Vigil

. . . a celebration of absence, the narrow shift

between dark and dawn, alleluias found

in a crevasse of infinite light.

Easter Vigil

The sky bleeds strawberries

over the Lancashire hills

on Holy Saturday night.

Churches spire their Gothic hopes

heavenward, awaiting Resurrection

among red clouds, nudging the night

into silver . . .
