4th of 5

This is no Lazarus As Lazarus was,

Shuffling out of the damp cave


Enveloped by sweltering heat,

Squinting slit-eyed through burial cloths 

Into blinding sunlight, discombobulated


By an unexpected awakening, disorientated

by hearing His premature name call


Only to be welcomed back later , a second time,

Into death's cold hungry embrace.


Rather, it is the prelude

To the imperishsble eternal order

Where the old order is reversed


Where death

Is swallowed up

By Life


And to die

Is gain,

It is said.
