Bodypsalm for Raw Joy

Don’t look for Easter outside you
it is within you
the outrageous birth of new life
is inside, under the ground
erupting through your body
enlivening your tissues

Resurrection is not a restricted zone
it is the lungs of your life
you are birthed anew each day
Easter celebrates the resurrection of Christ
this is not a one-time event
but breathes inside you each moment
spring asks
to look within and
pay attention to Spirit

Look at the faithfulness of new growth
even in the midst of a world
aching with troubles and tribulations
ecological cries and the haunts of war
the plants and trees still bud
the call to new life
p e r s i s t s

You live in a riparian zone
between the worlds
of earth and heaven
the gift of life in this body
beckons you to
an easter life
where you feed
on raw joy.

    The landscape of life
    Its peaks and valleys
    Stretch to create
    new space that
    germinates the seed
    of transformation
