This work has reached the exceptional level
Mary stood without... weeping

Whom Are You Seeking?

by Donka Kristeva

The time has come
time to witness with the rising sun,
Divine purposes fulfilled
then may the heart be still
it knows that steadfast
is the Spirit that upholds and heals.

My weariness and earth-born will
stumble, fall,
then melt before the stone
that rolled away in early morn
on a Spring day of years gone
when earth and Heaven shook,
and cowards fled, forsook
but woman wept and stood
before a glorious sight,
to be the first to know
-and bathe-
in Life's eternal glow.

Mary Magdalene was the first to see the risen Christ.
"But Mary stood without the sepulchre weeping....she turned herself back, and saw Jesus standing, and knew not that it was Jesus.. ... Jesus saith unto her, Woman, why weepest thou? whom sleekest thou?.. she saith unto him, Sir if thou have borne him... tell me where thou hast laid him.... Jesus saith unto her, Mary". John 20:11,14,15,16 (King James Version)
