Ascension (when necessary)

When resurrection is not enough;

when, beyond the empty tomb,

mud sucks footsteps back toward hell;

flash flood waters, falling, leave a ring around your soul,

and the sky too close for comfort, despite miracles

of incarnation, resurrection; ascension

gives flight to imagination, lifting

like a swan, lumbering, unlikely.
