Beginning for Sunday

The light had only just slipped into the day. It lay across the Galilee lake flat and yellow disturbed only where a fisher’s boat disturbed the edge between water and light; there the colours rippled and flashed as nets were hauled in, but there were no silver darlings; no catch today and turning towards the land once more light on their backs and faces heavy with shadow reflecting the world dull now Jesus was gone, the growing sunrise lit a man on the beach with a familiar gait and a fire broken bread and charcoaled fish; and there was a chink in their minds: was this just a trick? Of the light, or of heaven?
