Devotion to the Cross... poem by Peter Menkin ________________________________________
The Kingdom of heaven
is like a mustard seed.
So this parable leads these
two worshipers to seek their treasure in God.
Their emotions for the cross,
they carry, not so evident.
No displays in public,
one wouldn't know this couple's devotion.
The cross: thing of torture, ignomious end,
horrible death, mean judgment;
their lives embrace even this part of living.
Gaining a meaning from Christ,
saying "yes" in worship,
church by attendance
a statement for living their lives.
So startling large looms faith.
The couple kneel
with bowed head.
