Paradox

From Frances Young’s Construing The Cross:

 

“Paradox

Infinite

its reach

its feet

on the ground

its arms outstretched embracing cosmic space

constricted though they be by wood and nails

pointing beyond yet printing its shape just here

always

positioned

in one

particular

place

a single

moment

in time

one victim’s

pain

which somehow

exposes

all creation’s hurt

it showers

blood, sweat

and tears

cleansing

cascades

restoring

vitality

its feet touch earth

its reach is infinite”
