Folded Shroud

that disguised godhood 
was carefully covered 
in this space 
of burial and bier, 
but the fabric 
lies folded now.
Thieves would not 
have left it thus.
In haste they’d 
have let it fall 
into sepulcher dust.
on this third-day morning, 
the shape of all our fears 
and sorrows disappeared.  
Once-shrouded elements,
glorified, arose. 
This cloth remains,
linen edges 
pressed together.
The veil that covered 
the face of God 
lies folded here.
