The Table

Men of substance
I implore you
Rise early
Come gather around me
I have no ears with which to judge you

Allow your ideas to resonate
Vibrate within my core
Bounce from my surface
Come to life

I was formed for a Holy purpose
Placed in this room
Enclosed within these walls
A host for your imaginations
A silent witness to community

Men of substance
Think each others thoughts
Breathe spiritual breath
Allow me to be your Altar
Join your hands
Bow your heads
Be thankful
Blessed and courages

I am your silent witness
Made for this time
For this purpose
I welcome you
My honored guests

    Very, very well said. With open arms, with open eyes...and an open soul. Sounds about right. :)

    Rick! I have been absent from the Soup again for a while, obviously I HAD to stop by your work, naturally. This is magnificent. I continue to see you flourish as a poet- you never cease to impress me! A pleasure as always to stop by your work. Many many hugs, :)

    Thanks Shadow. I meet with a group of men once a week at the back of a Deli here in Kelowna. This was my inspiration.
