His Coming

Marc Chagall
en.wikipedia.org

He comes
as one who
goes unseen
in the crush
of a crowd

He stands
among you
with the poor
thirsting at
life’s well

He sleeps
next to you
on pavement
shiv’ring at
mid`night

He waits
in line with
a soup`bowl
in his hand
hungry

He comes
as one who
goes unseen
in the crush
of a crowd

“Among you stands one
whom you do not know . . .” ~ John 1:26

About Peter Notehelfer

I'm a retired people person who now finds the time to watch the little details of the world without worrying about being watched by anyone . . . I live on an Island north of Seattle with my wife named Ellen, a yellow dog named McGee, a yellow cat named Gatzby, and four fine chickens . . . I read fiction, bake bread, smoke salmon, and fish whenever the weather allows . . . Oh, and yes, I try to write a poem every day simply to avoid senility!
