The wallhanging is a study in black, red, white.
Strips of fabric interwoven.
Some pure black on black
Others white with black printed vines, scrolls.
Here is one with a black background
and the tip of the Eiffel tower.
The world a dark, fearsome place, shadowed.
But in the center of each block: a crimson cup
nestled in a field of white on white blossoms.
The Chalice, the blood, the Life of Christ
poured and offered.
Placed in the center of our lives, we bloom
the white flowers in His Grace.
