Ashes strewn to the ocean
have returned to us as birds.
Notes are tied to these messengers
for the ones who have waited too long.
You felt forgotten amongst the heavy agenda
of Heaven's timetables.
Intercessions floating up to the throne
didn't seem to bear your particular fragrance.
But God has written down something for you
in his own hand.
Communion is once again opening
with lines that are clear.
You've been blessed with the
blessings of fumbling Thomas.
We too, have felt the doubt and the pain.
We too, can reach into the side of Christ
and come away with resurrections of faith
on wounds and scars, transformed.
