Holy Saturday

         They returned, and prepared spices and ointments.
         On the sabbath they rested
         according to the commandment.
                  — Luke 23.56
               

In the beginning

you opened up

an emptiness

in yourself

for creation:

space

for darkness to sit in,

then time,

for light to travel.
 

This day of emptiness,

formless and void,

a pregnant pause

of sabbath rest,

space in you,

and time between,

divine abyss

for Creation

to happen.
