Good Friday

My music player just randomly pulled up Good Friday by the Cowboy Junkies. It's a nice coincidence, and also, my cue to step away from this computer, to stop working and get going. Yes. I am going...

Happy Easter!

Good Friday
Michael Timmins

Sat at my window watched the world
wake up this morning.
Purple sky slowly turning golden,
distant elms so orange you'd swear they're burning.

All this flowing water
has got my mind wandering.
Do you ever finally reach a point of knowing
or do you just wake up one day and say, "I am going"?

What will I tell you
when you ask me why I'm crying?
Will I point above at the Red Tail gracefully soaring
or down below where its' prey is quietly trembling?

Two thousand years ago Jesus is left there hanging.
Purple sky slowly turning golden.
Cowards at his feet loudly laughing.
Loved ones stumbling homeward their worlds reeling.
Red Tail above my head quietly soaring.
Waters turn from ice, creek is roaring.
He says, "enough of all this shit I am going".

What a treasure.. Thanks for sharing. Is it not weird this
randomly appeared on your mp3?
There are miracles and signs all
around us. Live everyday like it
is a special gift.

Missed you. REJ
