Florilegia (Sparklets)

With thanks to an article by Stephanie Paulsell in Christian Century, in the August 29, 2018 issue

A practice of monks
Medieval monks
Finding gleaming fragments
Which they assembled
To find
New truths.
There are always
New truths
To be found.
With new assembly.
New understanding
To be heard
In the grocery store
Next to the produce.
Oh Honey Bear
The husband said
To his wife
She did not look like
A Honey Bear
To us
But to him
She was.
A gleaming fragment
Next to the produce.
