Easter 2020. A poem by Antoinette Rock

Goldfinch chant
a cluster of yellow daffodils
faces the rising wind.

Good Friday He hangs in
agony; scourged. Easter Day
risen; hallelujah.

Deerpark forest – I stroll
between blue sky and bent grass
my fear leads the way.

In the foreground
frothy water hops between rocks
feeling fenced in.
