love's immensity

the death of death
put fear aside. now
that he has entered
into death on our behalf,
all who live
no longer die
as men once died.

the ephermeral occasion
has met its utter end.
as seeds cast to the earth, we
will not perish,
but like seeds
shall rise again- the shroud
of death itself having been
burst to tatters
by love's immensity.
