Incarnate Word by Charles A. Waugaman

Icon, image,
Portrait,
Scope.

Substance, promise,
Mirror,
Hope.

Christ holds Love,
Peace, for
All.

Earth, universe,
Palace,
Stall.

I am reprinting my post, Mercy, from April 25, 2021. The child we sponsor in Mexico is now 5 years old. Compassion sent us a form to write a Christmas greeting, for the child and his parents, and they will translate for us. We also correspond through email, courtesy of Compassion International. It is easy to stay in touch and offer encouragement. We are blessed.

the light is shared

light shines
through one window
and falls on the wood
frame of another
the light is shared

I wrote this poem yesterday, as part of my post Christmas Songs at POEMS FROM OOSTBURG, WISCONSIN.
