WordPress Prompt – Pride and Joy

pages falling out
held in place by tape
. . . the Psalms

Pride and Joy – a treasured possession.  I am grateful for many things, including the basics of life:  food, shelter, old clothes, and my Bibles (different English translations).

This haiku was published in Things with Wings, edited by Aubrie Cox at YAY WORDS!  Please see her Projects page for more information; the book is online for free.

treasures stored
here and there
homemade chapbooks

my large print Bible
rests on the Thanksgiving tray
the bread of life 

John 6: 35a And Jesus said unto them, I am the bread of life . . .
