“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)
