Three days



The rising sun erases
the parenthesis of Saturday
that last Sabbath

and so confusion
the earth shakes
reminder of Friday

guards cower as
a glowing white rolls
away the stone

what is left to death:
strips of linen
and emptiness

Sunday begins because
of what was not there.

Lovely. I especially like "the parenthesis of Saturday" and the last couplet.
