Heaven's Bread


Pieces of heaven fall to earth
as manna in the midst of chaos and pain.
Everyday moments of joy...
pockets of peace and beauty.

Gifts from paradise caught
by a wide open heart,
like snowflakes on a child’s tongue.

Communion with the Prince of peace,
the bread of life, himself.
Savored in joyful hope
and thanksgiving
‘til all is calm,
all is bright.

Patricia Spreng
