glean to give


Pentecost +9 - Year B

to and fro
signs completed
crowds following
enthralled
unto hunger

up and down
disciples
run errands
and complain
unendingly

no money
no store
no vision
no energy
you do it

bread in hand
fish in hand
clap enthusiastically
watch sandwiches
splash about

ahh satisfaction
enough reached
but another errand
poor learners
glean the leftovers

pieces cannot be built
into a temple
they are only good
for nothing but
giving away

around again
to where we began
crowds enraptured
with words
and deeds

fed and humbly
asking for more
we gradually learn
available abundance
feed and be fed
