Resurrexit Sicut Dixit

Resurrexit sicut Dixit, Alleluia

An empty nest lies underneath
a flowering Bougainvillea—
a sign of promises unkept
or fledgling flight?

An empty tomb that’s nestled
in Judea’s rocky hills—
another failed prophecy
or hope transcended?

The Latin title translates as “He is risen, as he said.”
