Recognizing Him by Raymond A. Foss

They didn’t recognize him at first
their minds lost, reeling, walking homeward
rudderless, lost, wondering what is to come
Their thoughts on the cross, on the tomb,
on the tomb empty, no answers, lost
A stranger, joining them, seemingly unaware
distraction from the pain, the sense of loss
But sharing, teaching, explaining
revealing the Master’s plan all along
Recognizing Him, as the Christ, as their shepherd
in the way he took the bread, blessing the loaf,
the way he broke the bread,
sharing the meal with them
Hope came alive in the instant
in that moment of recognition
Christ is risen; He is alive!
The prophesies all fulfilled,
so that we can know
we too shall live.
