Good Friday, 2019



( … 18 … 17 … 16 … )

Hardly a cloud in the sky
No need for this jacket
I discover too late

A tiny discomfort
In the scheme of things
Dwarfed by Spring’s bounty
Overall not a bad day after all

A good day for a crucifixion
Despite all the discomfort
Faith, hope and patience
All’s well that ends well

After all

After all

About Ben Naga

The Spirit that graces me with its passing has no name and stems not from thoughts and words, though it gathers them up as it flows, but from feeling.
