Easter!

A blessing from Jan Richardson :
SEEN

For Easter Day
You had not imagined

that something so empty

could fill you

to overflowing,
and now you carry

the knowledge

like an awful treasure

or like a child

that curls itself

within your heart:
how the emptiness

will bear forth

a new world

you cannot fathom

but on whose edge

you stand.
So why do you linger?

You have seen,

and so you are

already blessed.

You have been seen,

and so you are

the blessing.
There is no other word

you need.

There is simply

to go

and tell.

There is simply

to begin.
—Jan Richardson
