Glass Prayer

fused glass dish by Kerry Ellen

In glass I see wonder and light
Miracle of sand and ashes fired together
Silent serene self-contained
here and now
glass is what it is
and it is beautiful –
it’s been through the fire
it shows its true colors
only its essence is left
what you see is what you get
but keep looking through the layers
and see your soul wrapped in its shroud
the shy mystery and magic within
recycling connections forevermore
to all that was, and is, and someday shall be…
world without end, amen.

sweet seahorse of glass

sailing a sea of beads

shining in silence and grace

Jazz Glass

with 10 comments

this glass, this green glass, this blue glass,

this teal glass, even this pale purple glass,

this glass looks so cool, so calm, so serene,

but that is only because it is jazz glass:

it hides its past oh so well

so all you see is the cool.

 

this glass was not always cool and flat –

once it was burning hot, fluid, streaming,

molten like lava spilling from a volcano,

this glass is sand and ash that has paid its dues.

It has survived the fiery furnace,

But like a phoenix,

It has risen from the ashes to be reborn.

 

This glass is jazz glass –

It has paid the price,

It has counted the cost,

But it chooses to be transformed,

To groove on forevermore:

Behold the birth of cool!
