Wonder of Christ by Peter Menkin
by Peter Menkin 1/18/2009 / Poetry
A short poem reflecting on Christ and what He brings to us...
You as reader may find this a refreshingly short poem, that makes a point using threes. The implication of the use of threes is to elicite a sense of the Trinity's presence. As the poet, I have license to say such things and hope they are within reach by the imagination of the reader. A special artform, poetry does allow an expression of experience, love, observation that other forms are unable to communicate.
Note: This poem is like some others of its series, more simple and even made of statements. Please listen to the audio reading by the poet and find out if the poem stands better in your mind after the hearing. Of course, poetry also speaks to the heart, so hopefully does the audio reading by the aspiring poet Peter Menkin.
