I Saw a Crocus Yesterday

A man really ought to say, 'The Resurrection happened two thousand years ago' in the same spirit in which he says, 'I saw a crocus yesterday.' C. S. Lewis

I saw a crocus yesterday
and oh,
how incredibly glorious it was
emerging through
the seemingly inescapable tomb
of cold dark ground

While all seems bleak,
its bright bloom declared to me,
to everyone that witnessed it,
this is a time
to expand your lungs
and exhale with exaltation
for the miracle in our midst

its pure white tunic stripped
beneath the crush of frozen earth
to transform into
regal bliss
