Before Arriving at His Door

Before Arriving at His Door
(Matt 25)
We assemble
each with our color
and textures and sizes--
all with our palettes
of spirit surprises--
foolish and wise
still we gather
here at His Table
willing and able,
like so many lamps,
yours fuller, mine lacking
his flowing, hers glowing
theirs dim
coming to Him
in consecration--
a celebration of amber and blue,
scarlet, ecru and clear
sharing our store
so they who have less
have more.
