Reflections on Christ

Three poems to celebrate his living and loving grace:



We are all part of His one Body;

Christ, and the Father Godhead. This is the

Bread of Life; the energy of all things.

Created once, broken, and shared for

all Eternity. It is the force that

sustains us; the gift of life; God’s gift to us. 



He is the sweetest touch of my life;

He is the most graceful presence

I have ever felt or knelt beside,

I have ever judged or loved,

That I can ever hope to experience;

He is the love of my life.



The Spirit blows up on high

Beyond those church wardens

Heart so vast and open as the sky

Where in steady breathe it returns

Whence came grace and our cries

Homebound, into the land of Zion

At the foot, there was the Cross

Of Christ crucified. 



The Holy Spirit



As the soul soars high like a bird

As the bird is free to make heaven their home.


As home is the nest of family

As family is the bread of daily life.


As life is the temptation of good and evil

As evil is all that is left over down below.


As below the soul sinks like trodden soil

As soil came man when long ago

And as Spirit only can he hope to go.
