Linked Tanka on a theme for Papabear

Four old men trundle
Up and down streets in loose shoes
Selling religion–
We make no market for it
Here in God’s own green garden

As peonies fall
Potatoes climb to glory
Seeking sweet sunlight
Creating good food beneath –
Bean vines shoot up beside them

This is our warm place
Light falls like God’s own blessing
Feeding everything
Everything we need is here:
Loose shoes, good food, a warm place

    Thank you, Dear. I must admit that last line is an incomplete rendering of what Papabear says is all we really need in life.

So what do you think?
