Symbol 2010

My husband keeps a table;

Oval, white, pretty.

Pictures of his father/mother

Porcelain vases, candles two to light

On winter mornings,

Birthdays, death days, holidays. It’s sweet.

I’ve also got my table white:

Buddha statue, star of David,

Ramakrishna locket, scroll,

A candle which I do not light.

Ritual within our secular-

Cum-rational-cum-spiritual

Family small.

Symbols all

Placed where we will. It’s sweet.
