Theresa Ludwick

Theresa Ludwick is a freelance writer of nonfiction for magazines, newspapers, and websites, though her first literary loves are poetry and short stories. She has several unpublished collections that she hopes to publish one day. In the meantime, she is attending college in pursuit of a creative writing degree.

The Foolishness of God

A stumbling Man:
dirty, ragged, stupid-looking
in His purple robe and wooden crown.

He takes up the heavy cross,
drags it through the streets
as young and old behold the idiot
leading the procession.

They nail Him to the beam,
marrying His flesh to wood
and raise Him up for all to read
the message of the cross:
the foolishness of God.
