I'm entering this poem in the "Poetry & Short Story Contest" on the Creative Christian Writer website. They're accepting entries through tomorrow, May 18th if you'd like to enter. UPDATE: I won 2nd place!
Would you like sprinkles on that?
Cookies in Heaven
If God were a baker You’d be his “special of the day” His top-secret ingredient His favorite flavor His cherished recipe You’d be the chocolate chips The “only the finest ingredients” You’d be – organic.
If God were a baker Every day would be a special occasion He’d make you for friends And mail you to distant relatives He’d enjoy you first thing in the morning And last thing at night He’d rave about you all day long And finish each sweet crumb With a sigh of satisfaction.
If God were a baker He'd share your goodness with the world You’d bring healing and wholeness Wherever you went Your tenderness lighting up the darkness Your aroma reviving the faint Your sprinkles bringing laughter Your frosting making dreams come true And joy would fill every belly.
