Tamara Beryl Latham - The Poet

Magdalena (Sonnet)

 Magdalena (Sonnet)

 

Five loaves of bread, and two fish multiplied
to feed the waiting masses, weary now
from travel, sitting calmly, occupied
in thought, and reverence. I wondered how

 

mere mortal man accomplished such a feat,
without the use of trickery. I knew
that He was Christ, elected to complete
prophetic scripture laid down for the Jew.

 

In awe, I kissed His feet, my long brown hair
had dried the tears my eyes failed to contain,
in flashback, at the cross. Yes, I was there,
head veiled in black; a shadow in the rain.

 

The time draws nigh when faithless cease to laugh,
as wheat is separated from the chaff.

    Thank you TAMARA for a very Beautiful Poem about MAGDALENAS appreciation of Her LORD. In Verse 1. We see her amazed at the Miracle of the Loaves & Fishes. In V 2. She recognises that JESUS is the Messiah (Christ) foretold by the Prophets ! In V 3. She meditates on the CROSS. V 4. Meditates on the Judgement when the Wheat (Believers) is separated from the Chaff (Unbelievers). Every Blessings BRIAN & ANGELA

    A fine write Tamara. Erm, yes it was nothing short of.... miraculous, literally. And there were 5,000 men, besides women and children, it's said. So even more miraculous!

      Thank you for reading and offering feedback, orchidee. Yes, it was miraculous and we will see even greater miracles upon His return. Can't wait. :-)

      Hi Tamara, I'm not religious but you've wrote a really good sonnet here.

      Take care - Syd

      Not all are steeped in religion, not all have chapter and verse at their fingertips, but that does not prevent a lost soul appreciating a sonnet that rings of good news to come. I enjoyed it very much. Joe
