She Realized, Do We Realize? Easter mini Challenge

                                   She Realized... 

                            A quiet Resurrection morn

                         just like the day that He was born.

                               No crowns or thrones

                              or circumstance

                                 just Mary 

                            and her inward dance.

                                She saw

                            two angels garbed

                                 in white

                             noticing her Lord

                         had disappeared from sight.

                             She turned round

                                and saw

                              another man,

                             thinking it was

                              the gardner 

                               at hand.

                               When He

                              simply spoke

                                her name

                               she knew,

                              He was the One

                              who removed 

                              her shame.

                              Jesus said,
 
                             "Don't cling

                               but go,"

                           tell the disciples

                                I arose.

                 (This quote is author's paraphrase of John 20:17)

                             
                           
                              Do We Realize?

                             Joyful, resounding,

                                music we hear.

                                 It seems 

                                 the same

                                 every year.

                                 White lilies

                                 fill the room

                                  with light,

                                  yet where

                                is the intimacy

                                 in this sight?

                                 Do we notice

                               that Jesus is here

                               whispering softly

                                in our ear?

                                 We cling 

                               to our traditions,

                                  our order...

                                  Do we go

                               beyond our borders?

                                 Tell others

                                 why we sing?

                              Of Jesus our King;

                             and His sweet offering?

Such a lovely, gentle poem, skillfully weaving the words to capture the essence of the topic. Also your title was well thought out and in keeping with the piece. Great job.

This brought tears to my eyes, especially the part about Mary realizing He was the One who brought her out of her shame. Beautiful poem, Excellent writing.
