easter poem 2017

Looking into the fire


Four briquettes and a chunk of firelighter makes a lovely blaze,

Mass sung on the tv and Lyric fm like a babbling brook in the kitchen,

our highly insecure little Pom tries to relax on the colouredy rug

in front of the stove but poor Marley is just too highly strung

and yaps up startingly at some noise outside


Jesus, we are all on edge.

We need the daily porridge of prayer to settle us down

as the warm red fire slowly settles

until we get the blessing…..

The biblical “Shalom”
