taste & see


soul parched,

i need a sip
of living water

body famished,

i want a slice
of heaven’s bread

mind wearied,

i desire goblet
of wine divine

heart stained,

i wash in flow
of crimson blood

strength dead

i will rise to taste
celestial food



Joining Mish at dVerse Poets for quadrille #74 prompt on “sip”.

    It reminds me that drinking is a spiritual practice preparing one to sip living water.
