A Year of Poems – Day 55

What do you see?
“The branch of an almond tree,
A boiling pot tilted to the north,”
First the images, later the meaning.
Coals placed on tongues,
descending doves,
a kingdom inside a mustard seed,
and bread like flesh,
what should we learn from this?
except this is how He speaks
as a poet speaking with poets.
