Judy C. Meeker

My Lord they made this earth

a god market glutted, and heaven

crammed with phantoms-

They have marked you as a baranian-

after you, with bursting heart

had offered up the blood of your only child.

              + + +

My soul cries out for peace

my body for rapture.

I am a hand maiden in a wasted land

without food, without water

for my seed.

My tongue cries with hunger and with thirst-

My Lord your warm white manna, I crave

and will not drink from another.

Fill my body with the holy burst of your immortality-

please don't leave me to die in my human weakness.

I shall turn to look at you abruptly from a glass display

of my image under stained glass beneath a lamp- and

I will stare at you with the serious madness of some

thin faced and starving animal that is rapt with

poetic vision and with hunger...

Reviewed by Linda Wells 11/16/2006
Your hunger for the truth is so evident in this poem. You won't settle for less, your hunger can only be satisfied by the true meaning and not what this world has to offer. This is the best and most inspirational poem I have ever read in my life! You have put so much feeling in this particular peice, it gave me cold chills to read it aloud. How beautiful your words flow, you will not be satisfied with what the world has to offer, good for you! You are searching deep within your soul and you are finding the answers there. The eyes in this caption look so innocent, there is a pureness there. I see it, I hope others do too. Great work my dear. Wonderfully great!
