Easter Friday – At the Edge

Today’s Easter Poem from Education for Justice is by the wonderful Irish poet John O’Donohue.

At the Edge

Sometimes, behind the lines
Of words giving voice to the blue wind
That blows across the amber fields
Of your years, whispering the hungers
Your dignity conceals, and the caves
Of loss opening along shores forgotten
By the ocean, you can of most hear the depth
Of white silence, rising to deny everything.

    Let your tears out at the oceans edge, they can handle your sorrow, and surround you with waves of consolation in His Love!
