Cristi Drane Chapman

A container holding liquid
A bowl full of water
An ingredient for bread or tea
A clean dish ready to be put away
A dirty dish to be cleaned and then put away

Or maybe, something else:

Water, poured out and dribbled everywhere
like God poured out in you and me
The sun, lighting up the Son
and your and my belovedness
The world, reflected back, turned right side up
the way the Holy Spirit sees it
the way things will be in the end
when we let go of ourselves and
finally fall into the hands of God
