The Poet and the Preacher by Rebecca Holland

The Poet & The Preacher:

A Love Story in Four Micro-poems

 

Love Poem – from a Poet

I love you more than poetry

How can it be

that my heart didn’t create you?

When you are the deepest

most

beautiful

part

of

me.

 

 

Prayer –from a preacher

Our love is a sacred

Sacrifice

And I would gladly lie

down upon your altar

My heart bare for all to see

Please-

Say that you love me.

Lord- hear my prayer

 

My Prayer of Confession

Dear God-

I’m sorry.

But let me explain…

 

 

The Best Sermon I’ve Ever Written:

(And I’ve penned thousands)

Is love.
