Easter: Series 3rd

was the full moon
mid-week between Palm Sunday and
Good Friday with Maundy Thursday leading to Easter

occasioned blessing
unexpected. More than a year I tried
capturing a camera image of the orange full moon

it descended above
Susquehanna's far river shore
silhouetting hilltop trees during wander not so aimless.

a night I slept
not or slight, tracking the
moon's path only to loose it in horizon haze

preoccupation with
nocturnal tasks most likely
desk-top publishing or computational.

when I rose
early morning & let out the cat,
my gaze unexpectantly lingered upon that

face so charming looking
back just right reflecting upon
water's dark flow, big & orange behind the trees.

could I do but gather
my camera and linger snapping in haste
without a tripod, knowing my vision would be shaky.

so unlike knowledge
lacking belief in faith's object...a Triune
understanding unshakeably arising with that dawn.


(From the April 16th 2003 Entry
 in the Journal of a Computer Jockey
 by James I. Petersen,


Many of our cards are also available as art prints…
the perfect blend of poster and prose
suitable for framing.
