Doubt

Concrete certainty

solidifies

fluid possibility

and stultifies

natural evolution

diminishing

the mystery and wonder

of the Divine.

Doubt creates

the rising question

that leavens the bread,

the fruitful searching

that ferments the wine,

and the endless exploring

that finds the unexpected spark

of light in the darkened tomb.
