              Back From Emmaus

We met him as a stranger on the road
Just as we talked about what happened here,
We couldn’t see beyond what sadness sowed
And watered by each freshly flowing tear.
Then, even when He gave us all the facts
That death and disappointment had to be,
We stopped, commiserated in our tracks,
But still, with saddened hearts, we couldn’t see.
We learned and understood all that we heard,
Our hearts were quickened like a healing pool,
But still, we weren’t convinced alone by word,
To words, an anxious heart can be a fool.  
     But when He broke and handed us the bread
     Our hearts, like Him, were risen from the dead.

About the Poet
Husband, father, grandfather, and each title is my joy. As a youth, poetry was a means to express the inexpressable. I was attracted to (and still am) the beauty and brevity of verse. All flows out from God, and like a proper prayer, can flow back.
