Manna from Heaven

Thousands gathered unaware
Fish were sparse and rare
Seven loaves of bread to spare
Christ gently professed
Twelve baskets I’ve blessed
My children
Share!


Mark 6:41-44.

Wishing everyone a Happy and Blessed Easter!

Romanian "Ice and Desire"

"Striptease of sweetcherries" hot
With white dress ice-cream;
Liqueur-Impetuous fire;
This splendid old team,
In which desire
Is just small
Sip

Romanian Hunger

Lamb well roasted with wine : tears...
New potatoes red;
Savory grave,dill gravy
Green salad wears;
Forgive us...
God !...

Religious Epulaeryu

The light of first beginning
Still feeds us with love:
Hot Fish and Bread and white wine
As blessed meal of mine.
I eat with my dove 
The sweet grains,  
Lord.

Nice turkey for Thanksgiving Flavorful tasting Dressing aroma rising Temperature on low Sage wings, breast and thighs Like a rose Sweet! Ahhh!

My Vineyard (Epulaeryu)

Let the poor in my vineyard
Gleaning and eating
Even strangers I attest
Come to the harvest
Sweet grapes for the souls
Behold thy
Feast!

Resurrection

Buried mortal body dead
Dormant planted seed
Lay waiting sound sudden flash
Trumpet angels sing
Raised in glory

Sin a poison shut inside
Smell of death resides
In you cries out antidote
