Sabbatical: Stencilled Fulfillment
Emptied of self
Breams full new capacity
Pouring out love’s
Invisible wine

Opened up hands
Unmeasurable giving
Breaking life’s bread
So lovers can dine

Bread and New Wine
Stenciled fulfillment
Unleashing moment
Eternity’s Time.

It's over. Sabbatical done. This is one I wrote on the porch one evening this summer. As I searched for a title, it occurred to me that this idea of Stencilled Fulfillment is the essence of what sabbatical is to eternity.

I think "Sabbatical: Stencilled Fulfillment" is one of your best! Perhaps that's because I'm in a "waiting" place right now.

Thanks for sharing your thoughts and experiences!
