Evening examen-ate

evening compline

the imperishable crumbs of imperfect bread

dipped in the eternal whimsy of                 Photo: www.trappist.net

God’s good thoughts?

Will those left knocking outside

and feed paupers on a king’s repast?

If only that can be found,

then this has been a good day.
