Back in the mid-1990’s when I began writing poetry more seriously, this is one of the first poems I had accepted and published by Time of Singing in the Fall of 1996. This is a truly wonderful little Christian poetry journal.
Eyes of Christ
Draw a picture of ChristPick up pen, dip it in the inkwell
Sketch in the outline of a head
Come to the eyes, the most compelling
the unblemished, sacrificial lamb?
full of knowledge and acceptance?
of caring, concern?
Flashing ? Storm warning?
the Alpha and Omega,
the Good Shepherd seeking his lost
and unruly sheep?
Eyes turn to face eyes.
Put the pen down,
close the sketch pad.
A work in progress.
