Just, Plain Tali

I saw him at the market
Touting things he'd cooked
But really not just touting            (Colossians 3:17)
Upon a second look
The bowls of beef and salad
An introduction sweet
For voicing quaint "God love ya's"
To people he would meet
And out from counter stepping
To place a hand of care
On hurting ones who stopped by
Yes Jesus Christ was there
The bowls they did not empty
New fish and loaves of sort          (Matthew 14:16-21)
A Godly Puerto Rican
Dispensing good report.

(Tali or Nephtali)

(Philippians 4:8)

Note: This was a real encounter on my recent delightful holiday trip to friends in South Carolina.
