What You Bring to the Table

When you bring your water to the table,

Is it turgid? Is it simple?

Is it calm or is it foaming?

Is it clear or is it cloudy?

 

When you bring your bread to the table,

Is it moldy? Is it fresh?

Is it only one grain or many?

Is it frozen or just baked?

 

When you bring your fruit to the table,

Is it spoiled? Is it just picked?

Is it bright or its color muted?

Is it firm with fiber or soft with juice?

 

What is it that you bring to the table?

The best you are, or a pale imitation?

Alive and alert, or tired without sleep?

Complete and whole, or a gaping hole?

 

What you bring to the table matters
