On The Inside

Nondescript – Word of the Day



On The Inside

but to the day worn weary
I am perfect respite,
I am deep conversation,
friendship as gathered at table,
shoulder for tears,
Do not judge hastily,
a nondescript teacup on the outside,
my beauty lies on the inside.

    I do agree that beauty lies on the inside but I love that teacup! the earth and rust, the naturalness of the colors and the wonderful texture.

    Excerpt from the ancient Gospel of Thomas, (saying 89):
    Jesus said, “Why do you wash the outside of the cup?
