Easter Poem: Doubt and Belief

Copyright 2012 by DM Denton

A promise
was thought unlikely
by Thomas

A cold wind
all that could be felt
at the end

A weeping
for what had been lost
in sleeping

A patience
in followers of
obeisance

A sign for
the power of such
endless love

A rising
not just of the sun
surprising

A new world
so great and simply
unfurled

A promise
no longer doubted
by Thomas

Blessings for Easter, Passover and the miracle of spring!

  2. This is wonderful, Diane, said the not doubting Thomas.
    A rising
    not just of the sun
    but of the blessings of the seasons and searching into what Good Friday and Easter’s rising really means. Wonderful work.

  4. “A new world so great and simply unfurled” the victory over death and the grave and NEW LIFE–such a jaw-dropping gift! I really appreciate the way you concentrated on the “doubting Thomas” here, for that is so much of what we encounter in the world today.

    • The first line came to me quickly and then led me along (I’m sure you know how that is!)…I don’t actually think doubt is always a negative…not if it is a sincere seeking of truth, of the purpose of our spirit.

      I have a quote near my computer at work by Buddha: ‘Doubt everything. Find your own light.’

      Thanks, Rose!
