The Dryad of Gethsemane Speaks to Mary Magdalene on the Evening of Holy Saturday

by Holly Wells 02-24-2020
A poem.

Illustration by Ric Carrasquillo

I can tell from the way
they are staring at shadows on the ground
that the voice-bearers have come
from that place where
trees are not life-giving.

Two nights ago, One was here with them
Whose longing, love, and pain woke my soul,
which sleeps through winter,

He is not here with them now.
