DAY 27 (MOTHER AND SISTER)

(Matthew 13:33)

Jesus told them still another parable: “The Kingdom of heaven is like this. A woman takes some yeast and mixes it with a bushel of flour until the whole batch of dough rises.”

It is the space
Between two griefs
Centrepoint of loss

Nerves tensed to
Snapping
Like overstretched
Guitar strings

The Gospel churns

A memory of them
Baking bread
These women of the home

Parables of the Kingdom
Of Christ

And I am yeast
The raising ingredient

Tossed into the mix
And mess of flour

And sour milk
Moulded by expert
Godly Hands

Pounded
Pulled apart
Pressed

And baked
Bread in Hands
Of blessing

Given out
Distributed
