The Day Before

Mary Asked Martha

What if,
after the egg
rolled off the table,
we could come back
tomorrow
and find
a white feather,
the stir
of first flight.

Speaking her mind with comments meant to puzzle the listener! Had she not listened well to the Master when He boldly stated, in three days I will rise again? Perhaps she was also not quite awake on that glad morning?
Or she was wishing the angels had left a feather from their wings. (If angels do have wings?) I understand, and then I receive comments on my poetry that prove to me that the reader did not catch what the poem was actually about!
