Still life

The art teacher dug up
shallot from the student’s garden.
She placed it on top of a table.
The students were learning
how to paint still life

You picked it up
started stroking the leaves
like an angel playing a harp,
a choir of angels singing:
feed the hungry,
bring them to the table of the Lord.
