I am a Eucharistic Minister at my parish, St. Gregory the Great Episcopal Church, Athens, Georgia.  My time in that role began at St. Thomas Aquinas Episcopal Church, Baxley, Georgia, in 1997–sixteen years ago.

Bird seed and deer corn–

quite a feast for neighborhood wildlife–

birds, squirrels, and deer–

who gather in a backyard in the morn

and the afternoon with hunger rife.

Yet of humans they have a fear

proper for creatures wild born;

it probably preserves their life

elsewhere and just continues here.

Their presence I will not scorn,

for it proves soothing amid strife

caused by someone near.
