Lectionary Poetry – 1st Sunday of Christmas (Year B)

With the dawn of a new church year, we have launched a new feature on our website, a weekly post of poetry that resonates with the lectionary readings for that week (Revised Common Lectionary).

 
 

*** Revised Common Lectionary ***

Lectionary Reading:
Galatians 4:4-7

 
 
CONTEMPORARY POEM:

Adoption
Alison Kolodinsky

I stitched us together by night
in the rocking chair, marveled
at your fingers, the foreign navel,
memorized the sweep of your eyebrows,
unraveled your language.
