Renewing on the journey, a poem by Peter Menkin
by Peter Menkin 3/18/2009 / 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.
Renewing on the journey
by Peter Menkin --May 16, 2001
Omega, birth with Paschal
blessings into the Spirit
that is renewing me, how
alert one comes to the body
mystical. Drawn one is;
we are pilgrim
travelers on journey for
the everlasting strivings. Live
the cross; to know and meet
the cross and embrace the travails
with desire in the Omega that
is I Am. Enlarged in an exclamation:
surprise, and my springs
of blood in marrow of bone
are enlisted with birth's
great divine entry;
