Another kind of silence

So they went out and fled from the tomb, for terror and amazement had seized them; and they said nothing to anyone, for they were afraid. Mark 1:8


No Alleluia!
No Amen!
Just a stunned silence
from the women
who went to the tomb
early in the morning.
Was it because they were overcome? 
with emotion?
with fear?
Or was it because
they realised
that if this was true
if he could rise from death
as he told them
then all those other things he said
must also be true
and we've been tagged
to continue the story. 
Still God waits
For the ending
depends on us.

It's almost as if Mark's gospel ends with 'over to you'.
