August Abundance

– Br. Michael, ofm

Filled and overflowing

is the bucket

with garden delights

many the variety

the colors exuberant

you can smell

you can taste

the goodness already.

The kingdom of heaven

must be like this

rich, vibrant, delicious,

nourishing and healing.

I realize once again

we catch glimpses

of the kingdom now

in the changing seasons

of life.

God is good.
