"Have this mind among yourselves, which is yours in Christ Jesus, who, though he was in the form of God, did not count equality with God a thing to be grasped, but emptied himself, by taking the form of a servant, being born in the likeness of men. And being found in human form, he humbled himself by becoming obedient to the point of death, even death on a cross. Therefore God has highly exalted him and bestowed on him the name that is above every name, so that at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, in heaven and on earth and under the earth, and every tongue confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father." Paul to the persecuted at Philippi (2:5-11)

Its been a long time since we've had a sijo.

Nothing more beautiful in the morning than a curling,
Rolling, rising, mist, fogging my glasses and warming senses,
Rising like prayers of dark, scented incense-- a cup of coffee.

  1. When General George upset George the third, Well then -
    Tory Anglican became Nu-world Episcopal; coffee replaced tea
    But for the peace this Sunday morning, it still is tea for me.

  2. I shall have my coffee and you shall sip your steaming tea,
    The battles long have ended, and the redcoats have all gone home,
    what matters on cold mornings-- steaming water and caffeine.
