Rev. Peter's Poem for June and This Sunday

Our month long Spiritual Theme for June is "Beauty"

"Still Life" by Rev. Peter Friedrichs is our poem for June 

A clutch of apricots in slanting light 
nestles in a stoneware bowl. 
Four glowing eggs, washed in sunset tones.
Their brilliance brags of summer’s ease, 
and savoring a lover’s kiss, whose taste 
long-lingers on the lips.
 
But what about the bowl itself? 
The simple dish that cradles these 
raucous globes with unobtrusive ease? 
Graceful, yes, but modest, too.
It strikes an unassuming pose.
Not the actors, but the stage
on which the play unfolds.
 
How much we strive to be the sun, 
the lavish fruit, at least a waxing moon. 
What if, instead, we sought 
to be the bowl, all quiet strength. 
And – humbly, daily – invited  
Beauty to find a home in us.
