Every bowl is a prayer
The Common Bowl replaces the common prayer
and we are no less reverent. Circled and embraced,
we link in a necklace of connection, grasp in the other
a piece of ourselves. She makes bowls, open and wide,
hands crafting from emptiness something out of nothing.
It is not magic this finish both rough and bright, and we are
no less cracked and patched. Peculiar, particular, resilient,
in our need we take turns to weep and shine. We grip the
bowl greedy for more, shamed with want, humbled
in desire, cleansed in the bounty of spirit shared.
