Small Churches



It is with small churches
you must always reside.

Because from their tipped rooves
you will observe the delicate
feeling of trees, their leaves
alive with a white heat.

Because you will taste the hopeful sight
of laughter needing more laughter.

Because you will realise
that this body is for truth
for folding between the lines.

Some will ask:

with small churches,
must you always reside?

You will answer: Yes.
With small churches.

Yes.
What more can I say?
Loving wandering around your blog. It's quirky, I'm guessing Melbourne suits you...

Thanks! It's funny how many people have said that. If Melbourne = quirk, I'm up for that.
