It's Sunflower Season!

 Sunflowers photographed by Maude
Israel Pilgrimage—1986
Big, bodacious sunflowers
live up to their name
sun-shining a million
dazzling petal spires at us
along Emmaus Road
It is fitting
because I am ablaze
with Jesus-joy
to be here
as I think about my newly
Resurrected Lord, vanishing
at the very breaking
of the bread
astonishing the disciples
who sat with Him
at table
Those utterly bewildered disciples
whose hearts thumped
and blazed
with glory fire
as He walked with them
as He explained to them
the Holy Scriptures
2000 years ago
along this very road

It's always a blessing to hear from visitors to this website, so I want to invite and encourage you to leave a comment below.
