Holy Saturday

               …there was silence in heaven for about half an hour.
                  —Revelation 8.1

God taking it all in.
Heaven inhaling.

Even God has to wait
for love to gestate.

Gracious host even to pain,
staying with it,

the silence, the remorse,
the lack of remorse.

Forgiveness doesn’t come
from a shallow breath.
