Poem for Good Friday

Today I am happy
I am wearing clothes in my favourite colours
Turquoise, aqua, mauve and gold
Even my shoes are greeny-blue
As the fresh leaves tenderly stroke
The soft, calm blue of the sky
And as last night's dew sparkles in the grass
I feel more utterly
Settled comfortably into myself
Than I have for 30 turbulent years
And today - who knows? - I may
Take up a brush again and paint
