Quaker Grace.


We were two strangers, sitting face to face,

("Welcome, my dear! Come in ~ come in.")

a white cloth spread between

set out with biscuits, dainty, colourful;

("My neighbour's gift ~ & now a guest to share")

translucent, fluted cups,

and over all the frangrant breath of tea.
Her aged arthritic hands relaxed for Grace.


Silence.


Be still & know...


Like an electric shock

a jolt through body, mind & soul,

the Spirit came.
