The women who watched him died brought spices
Brought spices to do what they could not do on the Friday
Prepare his body for burial
Had they slept at all that Saturday, as they mourned for all they had lost?
Loss of hope
loss of dreams
loss of their Lord
is that why they came to the garden so early
they could not sleep.
So they went to the tomb, at sunrise, at the beginning of a new week
bringing spices with them
worried how they would roll the stone away
