The Bread and the Wine #NaPoWriMo2016 #GloPoWriMo2016

The bread and the wine,
Reverently consumed,
So we never forget
Your death made us room
In the kingdom of heaven,
In the house of the Father,
With the angelic host
Singing praise to the Master.
In the cup, on a plate,
Simple elements combine
To mark Your victory:
Broken bread, poured-out wine.

An old favourite of mine, originally posted in January 2014, and brought out for Day Six of the National Poetry Writing Month challenge – to write a poem about food . . . so why not the Lord’s Supper?
