Torrens Voluptatis

Torrens Voluptatis

For God is not merely mending, not simply
restoring a status quo. Redeemed humanity
is to be something more glorious than any
unfallen race now is (if at this moment  the night sky
conceals any such)…those who have never fallen will
thus bless Adam’s fall.    – C.S. Lewis, Miracles

The angry thorns
created an applauding blood
to drip in Your face

The nails
that made Your ankle crossed the other
and arms raised down
are my unbendable links to You

The soldier’s spear
made sure Your death becomes mine
