A Poem To Sit With
5th Sunday of Ordinary Time C
February 7, 2016

For astonishment at the catch of fish they had made         
seized him and all those with him
. (Gospel)         

Again I was running
from you, Lord

when I fell
into
that field
of
clover filled
with
filigree butterflies
and
enameled bugs
on
apple leaves

blue chicory
and
running rabbits
and
daisies gold
and
white—all in
full

sunlight
