One of My Poems

I decided it is time to throw a wrench in the stream of tags coming in. So whether you like it or not here is a poem I have written.

The Crystal Bowl
By Caitlin Carstensen

The light of sun diffused
Sends glimmering rays around
The sparkling, dancing drops
Scattering darkness from the ground.
This the same as the joyous Christian
Scatters the light of the Holy Son.

Only water pure and clear
From the earth, the deepest wells
Wash the crystal clear and shining
To catch the beauty no one sells.
This the same as the joyous Christian
Cleansed in the holy water of Life.

May the bowl be filled with fruits
Of the sweetest, crispest kind
From all manner giving, sharing
Heaped to brimming every time.
This the same as the joyous Christian
Filled with the fruits of the Holy Spirit.

Like the Crystal Sea of heaven
Radiant in the glorious light
Stretching out into the distance
Always full and glimmering bright.
This the same as the joyous Christian
A crystal bowl diffusing Christ.

I hope you were blessed.
