the sky breaks
splitting infinity
for an awed moment
and the sky cries
as time stands still

the tears of heaven
turn crimson
cleansing His scars

the wind wails
joining the cries
of those who loved Him

uniting, the wailing
and the tears
intensify
striking fears
in the hearts
of His people

one lone soldier
stands
silent, observant
he finally believes
that as the sky cries
the man on the cross
is truly who He says
He is

the Son
of
the
only
living God
