Along the Road: Day Twenty

Metamorphosis by Joshua Sarantitis

Along the road
came a handy`man
lumber on his back
saw hammer in hand
his blue`print bold
to rebuild a world
out of wreckage

From survivors
came apprentices
searching meaning
vocations that matter
in caring community
healing brokenness
of body & spirit

“Unless the Lord builds the house,
      those who build it labor in vain.
Unless the Lord guards the city,
      the guard keeps watch in vain.” ~ Psalm 127:1


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!
