My friend Jason is hosting a sort of poetry circle today. I'm not much of a poet, though I do enjoy reading poetry. Today's inspiration is Jesus feeding the 5,000. I love that story. I love how he took so little, and made it more than enough. The Word of God transforms what is meager to plentiful!
I'm not sure that by making it a conversation, I am following the format correctly, but the following poem is supposed to be a Tanka. Tanka is a Japanese poetry type of five lines, the first and third composed of five syllables and the rest of seven. Tanka is the oldest type of poetry in Japan.
Abundance from Little
"The people need food"
"Share with them what you have brought"
"But it's not enough for all"
"First place it into my hands
where it will become a feast"
