“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)

Lake Michigan

weeping willows
reach towards ground
humility

small waves to shore
one song after another
fades to silence

how does it stay
so regal on this day?
Queen Anne’s Lace

lake and sky
the same color
Autumn Equinox

highway sounds
in the distance
years gone by
