Be On Your Guard*

With care, I listen
and suspicion sets in;
too many lies
from so many voices
and the bread simply
will not rise.

The only words remaining
that fill my hungry heart
speak through the coo of the dove,
the warmth of the rising sun,
the way of the Risen One,
the God of pure Love.

*With thanks to Matthew 16:6 (NIV)
