Nicodemus by night
Harvey S. Mozolak

dead unseeing wall
of stone and rock
crying a cataract of tears
waterfall in graven grief
wearing away the hard earth
but never bearing
the flowers of birth
in the dark night
sightless as the blind
in the dark womb
of un-birth
comes one in the nick of time
allowed by eternity
to be the sign
cross stick
the log jam
above the cataract
of the soul
dark without Jesus

Lent 2
John 3. 1-17
