empty spaces

I offer you my empty spaces
as they must be vacant
for a very good reason

if you’d like to, you can fill them
with intentions of your own

I’ll be like a jar holding water
- you can tilt me this way, or that
then others who are empty
can be filled, as well.

heaven is like this:

a woman at the table
working yeast into the dough
shaping life with her fingers
waiting for it to rise

heaven is a loaf of bread.
