A Good Christian

(For Paul Vincent Cannon, poet/editor of “parallax,” a brethren poetic site on our own WordPress platform, who dedicates his life to bringing the waters of compassion to arid Australia — check him out when you desire to read the real fine grit)

You know what, PV?
You kept on writing to me
Even through the busy season
Even when there was no reason

In a month I couldn’t look,
Even, at your growing book
Of insightful, delightful verse
At all, and what is even worse

Had little cheerful news to tell
I wasn’t doing very well
It’s beyond the slightest question
You’re what we call a Good Christian

  1. So very kind and such high praise, many thanks dear friend. I am gobsmacked at the poem, so undeserved on my part in all truth, but yes, I keep grinding away. Thank you so much. 🙂
