What Does Resurrection Mean to Me?

 

I was asked to read a poem as part of Easter Sunrise service. No one told me what poem and I didn’t find what I wanted so I wrote one. While it isn’t my first poem and hope it won’t be my last, it is something I haven’t done much of in the past.

Life with eternity
