He Is Risen

Could not find the glasses
looked everywhere
Could not find the house keys
how to lock the door?
how to leave?

Searched at a frantic pace
keys in hand
glasses resting on the bridge of a nose
upon an alarmed face

There all along…
how often we search
for what we’ve already been given
rummage through tombs…
in search of the living
