on the sweetness of bread

Julia Weaver Mandala
Mandala "The Invitation" by Julia Weaver at mandalaweaver.com

in the silence
of the world,
when she pauses
to breathe
the invitation
to come to the feast
of gift and love,
issuing the call
to sit and taste
the freshness of bread
and to sip the
most divine grape,
my breath
is swept away by
the honeyed goodness
offered with each heartbeat
echoing like an
ancient drum circle
drawing wisdom from the
earth's breast offering the
pure sweetness of
your breath.


Prompted by Verse in a Nutshell, “Sugar”

      I'm working on focusing my writings on what I really want to communicate which is much about love and grace.

    I had not seen this one. The imagery visually on this is a soulful experience indeed. Well done.
