Inside This Clay Jug

handmade cards, collage art

“Inside this clay jug there are canyons and pine mountains,

and the maker of canyons and pine mountains!

All seven oceans are inside, and hundreds of millions of stars.

The acid that tests gold is there, and the one who judges jewels.

And the music from the strings no one touches,

and the source of all water.

If you want the truth, I will tell you the truth:

Friend, listen:  the God whom I love is inside.”

—Kabir (version by Robert Bly)

The woman in the image is my grandmother.
