Poor Widow

For Real Toads this weekend, we are trying the cherita form. It is like a story in 6 lines, and the lines can be any length. This was inspired by yesterday’s Gospel reading, about the widow who put in just a tiny bit of money into the treasury (Mark 12:38-44).


She put in everything.

Two coins a bigger offering
Than the rich ones’ wealth.

All she has to live on:
Trust, profound hope in God
Are the rich ones poor?
