“the bread of life”

My Journal Poems

FallBouquet 001

my large print Bible
rests on the Thanksgiving tray
the bread of life

John 6: 35 (KJV):  And Jesus said unto them, I am the bread of life:  he that cometh to me shall never hunger: and he that believeth on me shall never thirst.

FallBouquet 004

birds perch
in sheltering branches –
a grain of mustard seed

Matthew 13: 31 – 32

(Published in Time Of Singing, 1995)

FallBouquet 011Northern sun
shines on frozen beach
still the days grow shorter
shadow of poinsettia
on the wall

(Quiet Christmas Poetry)

Sharing Haiku Lesson 2 – The Haiku Foundation Digital Library

Haiku Art Site 2012 - 2017

Jim Kacian and I completed a new lesson plan:

Sharing Haiku Lesson 2 – The Haiku Foundation Digital Library.

I will keep this post short, and hope you can look at the plan if you are interested.  It lists the 7 collections in THF Digital Library, and the lesson features a book by Ion Codrescu.  Garry Eaton is the volunteer librarian.

The Haiku Foundation is non-profit.

Thank you
