Through 21st Century Eyes

Through 21st Century Eyes
The stone is rolled back
from the empty tomb,
not to let Jesus out,
but to reveal that Jesus is not there.
He has passed through a membrane
into another dimension,
the Other World that is woven
into and through our world.
In the days that follow
the Risen Christ passes at times
back through that membrane
to appear to his closest friends:
first to Mary of Magdala,
then to his other disciples.
With surprising Easter ease
he draws us now and then
into that peaceful Other World.
