GHOSTLY

A furtive watchfulness as she slowly descended

The black depths, like a malevolence,

But willing the horror fast away she

Replaced it with at least a semblance.

.

.

Of the true reality, the pure thought lost presence,

That has filled her heart with wholeness

And the wholesome freedom from that dreaded fear

Rendering her dread done, meaningless!

.

.

Still somewhat fearful but without trepidation

Remembering His pre-promised prediction

To see her again, but that could never be!

Dismissed the thought as pure wishful thinking.

.

.

So less fearful now, she felt her way forward!

Without candle so needing to place

Her hand on the damp wall that led to the chamber,

Then suddenly in shocked surprise a shining face.

.

.

Her hand went to her mouth in pure terror

A ghostly figure sat upon a stone.

While a cocoon-like shroud deflated slowly

A figure, in white, sat there alone!

.

.

The face, in glowing whiteness, then slowly turned,

Like waking from a deep sleep candidly,

His gaze met hers and without surprise

Smiled and greeted her by name, Mary!
