Bowl Prayer by Terry Trowbridge

Bowl Prayer


Bowls made of wood. Trees made of time.

Rings measure volume, recipes,

and mark moments to scry.


Bowls made of metal. Copper makes coins.

Surfaces are mirrors: table and sky

for reflecting on phases and visitors’ minds.


Bowls made of plastic, pottery, ceramic.

Meals take minutes, but the settings are forever.

Remember, the tables we set, can be set forever.
