A Poem by Sharon Hawley: "Seder"

Seder

Table set with metaphor blood and flesh wine and bread unleavened baked scroll of ancient words curling parsley, bitter herbs a simple obedient supper relic of sacrifice bleating lamb blood around the door horseradish of slavery on matzo apples and walnuts of freedom on matzo both together, bitter and sweet on matzo parsley dipped in salt water tears of joy, tears of sorrow salt of the desert salt in the eye slavery escaped Jerusalem beckons

I love nature and the One who made it, and the science of nature. I see it mostly in wilderness treks and in words of poets and of the Word. It all comes together for me--no separation of church and creation, of Word and science.
