A short poem reflecting on Christ and what He brings to us...

You as reader may find this a refreshingly short poem, that makes a point using threes. The implication of the use of threes is to elicite a sense of the Trinity's presence. As the poet, I have license to say such things and hope they are within reach by the imagination of the reader. A special artform, poetry does allow an expression of experience, love, observation that other forms are unable to communicate.

Wonder of Christ...

by Peter Menkin

Wonder, wonder, wonder;

starry night.


Delight in Eucharist,

Sunday morning.


Wonder, wonder, wonder.

How great.

You are.

So kind. So kind. So kind.

What mercy.
