Raymond A. Foss Poems >>
The Bread of Life

The bread of life
basic, essential food
a simple metaphor
of something far grander
So he spoke, to the people
in words that had common meaning
in that time and place
Bread of life
offered for us
food of life
daily bread
living water
I am these he said
a precious gift from God
needed for life
