Christ Has Risen Indeed

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

The Incredulity of Thomas

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

Incredulity
guards the heart
seals the tomb
from disappointment.

“Thomas!”
Voice charged,
words spark.
“See.
Touch.”

Incredulity
reaches out,
flesh toward flesh
until–

hope arcs
current flows.

One mind, one heart, one joy.
