Martha and Mary

Four Haiku

Martha and Mary
once had Jesus to dinner.
They made him welcome.

In the kitchen’s heat
Martha worked hard, worrying;
all must be perfect.

Mary, listening,
sits at Jesus’ feet, eager,
dining on his words.

Jesus loves them both;
but, called upon, says Mary
made the better choice.
