Christ Has Risen

The Incredulity of St. Thomas by Carivaggio. 1601-2“The Incredulity of St. Thomas” by Caravaggio, 1601-2

The Incredulity of Thomas

Words are wasted on his
impenetrable mind:
“Unless I see,
unless I touch.”

guards the heart
seals the tomb
from disappointment.

Voice charged,
words spark.

reaches out,
flesh toward flesh

hope arcs
current flows.

One mind, one heart, one joy.

  2. Esther Hizsa says:

    Don’t you just wish you were a fly on the wall when that happened? Happy Easter!
