"...Lord Christ backlit by flickering orange coronas..."

For David and Julie Peyton

Lord Christ backlit by flickering orange coronas

they fling and fall and obediently


bringing forth herb and fruit

according to their kind;

more of your rugged sense of humor,

your slapstick, your crosses, your thorny crowns.

The bread and the lentils,

the water and the wooden cup

Martha brings you; her halt step

and the love in her eyes.
