the table

.

i went to a dinner.  there was much.  the ugly table was covered in fine white cotton.  the dishes were clean.  there were more forks and spoons than any one person really needs.  stems of flowers were cut and put into containers.  the petals became hidden as the stems holding wine surrounded them.  the chef and crew worked very hard to please.  i talked with people that i would not usually meet.  i met a neighbor couple that has lived up the road from us for seven years.  we see what is in front of us.  do we see what is hidden within?  do we see what God places before us that is within the world?  hearts, souls and petals.
