Easter 2 B

Holy Humor Rises

holy humor rises quickly
to chuckles and belly-laughs

what was first seen as personal
and unique beyond humanity

soon passes from separated sacredness
to everyday everydayness

resurrection is to be passed forward
calming the fearful where’er they be

closed rooms and dark tombs
are different only in spelling

from out of nowhere and anywhere
a spark glows into laughter

common-good becomes common
as well as good good

joy is doubled as doubts are raised
now able to be dealt with

even as Thomas is Twinned in us
a not seen blesses the not seen

heart and soul prophecy against profits
as they are laid at one another’s feet

when what is mine is also yours
holy humor rises quickly
