Poem: "Eucharist"

a thanksgiving shared from the body —
a table lean-to         surrounded by
family         friends         community         
broken body        blood runs so deep
a shared new bond between
creator and creation     of life    and joy    
a confession        absolution        peace
something to establish harmony        
something divine—fourfold remembrance:    
taking            blessing            breaking        sharing
the giving of thanks        and         loves acceptance
piece of bread            cup of the vine.
