A Corpus Christi Mindset


Mind emptied.
Tabernacle full.
Body of Christ.
I stand before it.
Mindless motions
that I
have performed
an uncounted
number of times.
'Hoc est enim'
I mutter in
time honoured fashion.

They line up like soldiers.
Eyes embraced with
words I have given them to say.

'Corpus Christi; Corpus Christi; Corpus Christi.'

Over and over until the last one has
returned to his place in the choral filled building.

They see me as the symbol of God.
Make the sign of the cross.
Bless them.
Bless me.

Renew me Jesus.
remind me

I Found you and I lost you,
All on a gleaming day.
The day was filled with sunshine,
And the land was full of May.

Its melody divine,
