Holy Week Poetry: Intermingled
For we who are alive are always being given over to death for Jesus' sake, so that his life may be revealed in our mortal body.

intermingled life and death
fusion of your blood and breath
the human God of Love Divine
heals lineage of our broken line

intermingled joy and pain
behold the son of goodness slain
sealed by stone in earthen mound
while resurrection rends the ground

My Son! My Joy rise up to reign!
The end of death makes suffering's stain
a work of art in wounded clay
revealing script of passions play

O suffering God grant me a share
to humbly speak the Garden's prayer
to bid Your life in me be born
my striving temple's veil be torn

my body now entombed by flood
intermingled water and blood
resuscitated by your death
intermingled with the Risen breath.

John David Walt, Jr.

Great work! I really like they way you seem to be able to spin a whole tapestry of the Easter story from the word "intermingled", which I think you've showed can carry a lot of significance. keep up the good work, I really enjoy reading your poetry!
