Feast in the House of Simon - 1610, El Greco
It was evident Simon's house was the place
to be this day. More then one Apostle scratched
another event from his calendar
to make an appearance. Even as it was in the house
of a Pharisee- they were in the presence of Jesus
and this would be more then a fresco
more then a story to tell the grandchildren.
Wine was poured and hard rolls plated
were hardly touched as Simon would offer
up question after question of the one
they called Christ who would with delicacy
of a needle on vinyl respond to each one.
