Renewing on the Journey by Peter Menkin
by Peter Menkin 1/18/2009 / Poetry
We go on in spirit with the journey with Christ this Easter...a blessing of the Spirit...
I have been thinking about Easter, and at Church we have been talking about the risen Christ. This poem posted here was not written in Easter, but afterward in May of some years ago. I liked how it talked of journeying on with each other in Christ. So it seems also to fit the theme of the Gospel this day that is about Thomas and the risen Christ coming to visit the disciples in a room.
Notes: In the positive sense, this poem like the others like it which are short, makes specific statements which are intended to elicit a sense of the spiritual
and religous in the Christian, and communicate something of faith to the general reader. Tied to religious experience, the poem reflects an attitude of the "Parish Poet" Peter Menkin, including praise and thanksgiving. Some have called these poems part of the "faith poem" kind, and that they are, but more they are intended as religious and spiritual.
Peter Menkin, an aspiring poet, lives in Mill Valley, CA USA where he writes poetry. He is an Oblate of Immaculate Heart Hermitage, Big Sur, CA and that means he is a Camaldoli Benedictine. He is 64 years of age as of 2010.
