Holy Grounds

Pilgrims pew to get a view of God;
she never spills the coffee.
Faith is found in holy grounds
held by steady hands.
With the sign of the Sunday crossword,
St. Creola gives each a blessing
and a small to-go-with-God box
as the Queen purrs, "Come again."

Having a little fun with Ella's prompt at Real Toads.  Hmmm . . . which Toad's "home" could this be?

Those first couple of lines threw me off (Well, it can't be me with all the religiousity..LOL) then my AH moment arrived... There's religion, then there's St Creola.

I do not know this person, but I would like to! The priest of the God of coffee and lunch boxes and steady grounds and crayons . . .

Fred Rutherford said...

lots of neat lines here, the holy grounds following the coffee, the steady hand symbolism, the to-go box and love the last line. Cool, fun piece MZ.

Grandmother said...

This is deeply wise while fun. Holy is every day everywhere- you said it!

Mary said...

Ha, I love your idea of holy grounds, MZ.

De said...

LOVE this! Especially "pew" as verb, and those holy grounds. Mmmmm.

Thanks so much, too, for your kind comment over at Toads today! :)

Wonderfully written, MZ, and agree with Mary on "holy grounds" and De on "pew" as verb. I love it.

And all the people said 'Amen!' Your word usage is a religious experience.

Now that I can type again, I wanted to tell that I just loved this. It put a big grin across my face!

What excellent word play! I love "Sunday crosswords." I would never have figured this one out.
