Poem-Empty tomb

contributor: Sue Brown


Poem/Reflection - Luke 24:1-12

Empty Tomb
Strong spices: myrrh, aloes.
Pungent enough to mask the odour of decay.
Whenever I smell strong spices I re-live that morning.
The spices were heavy, but that was not the reason we were breathless.
It was cool; the sun had not yet risen, but that wasn’t why a shiver ran through my body.
It was the shock.
The word spun round and round in my mind.
