Resurrection
by R. D. Ashby
Bookmark and Share
 
Though it may appear to be extraordinary,
metaphor explains its acceptability in principle,
it fits the cycle of life and death.
 
Each dawn is a resurrection, each spring season,
birth too is a resurrection, change itself
the movement of resurrection, for the better.
 
But that a man should rise from the dead
is to give literal meaning to the term,
and no one comes back from the dead.
 
The cycle of birth and rebirth offers
a clue, a man is reborn from his former self
in another form, another lifetime.
 
The resurrection of Christ is unlike re-birth,
the man stepping out of the tomb is the same
that was interred,  unchanged to all appearances.
 
The risen Christ appears to his followers, talks
and eats with them, and vanishes from their midst,
finally physically ascending in the sky.
 
The supernatural blends with the natural
seamlessly, we are led to believe, and the cult
is alive, the credibility of fantasy.
