How to Digest a Parable

How to Digest a Parable
Mark 4:10-23

Clear the clutter.
Set a place at the table,
cleanse your palate
with a sip of time
in God’s presence.
Spoon up a serving of Word.

Take each bite slowly,
taste it with more than tongue,
mouth each syllable and phrase,
swallow, digest the sentences
one by one
until they form a fullness
in your mind.

Breathe in the aroma
of the Holy Spirit.
Absorb knowledge, wisdom.
Let it form part of who
you are.
Come back for more.

    April is National Poetry Month. The theme of Food poems was mentioned by one of my Canadian friends. So food for the soul.
