– for Leanne

caterpillar worm

eating way thru milkweed leaves

inches slowly on


stops to shed dead skin

hope curls inside dark cocoon

change from inside out


miracle in time

to emerge as butterfly

delicate wings rise


“He has made everything beautiful in its time. Also He has put eternity in their hearts, except that no one can find out the work that God does from beginning to end.”  

-from wisdom book of Ecclesiastes 3:11

thirst no more



water washing clean- a sign

overflowing cup is mine

miracle of his design

grafted fruit of father’s vine

spirit-pressed agape wine
