Christ's Enveloping Charity by Peter Menkin
by Peter Menkin  
1/18/2009 / Poetry

Poem reflecting on gifts from Christ: "For God alone my soul in silence waits"

Today, Friday, I visited a woman in the health care unit of a retirement home. She asked me for a word, and I gave her these. I am thinking about them today: "For God alone my soul in silence waits;/from him comes my salvation..." (Psalm 62, BCP). The poem I post today is a personal statement about Christ and I hope has meaning for you as a believer, or if not a believer, gives you insight into the Psalm quotation noted above. It is here without changes after being posted on Frugal Poets writer's workshop. It received some nice remarks.

by Peter Menkin

With Christ,


With Christ,


With Christ,


There is faith,


There is love,


There is majesty


From Him,


From Him,


From Him,


The serenityIs beyond knowing;

Great peace.

The hope,

Causes the heart to grow large;

Enveloping others.

The charity,

Is of a special kind;

In humility of the self.

In the kindness

There is love,

A knowing majesty

Of awe bringing Comfort, creating

Gratefulness that is itself


These aphorisms come to mind,

As meditation leads to prayer,

And thanksgiving.

My heart is enlarged, it grows

With the humility of recognition

Of your enveloping charity

For mankind.

Audio reading of poem by the poet is here:

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.
