Empty Vessel

By Francis Scudellari

How now shape this, empty vessel?
By content? Better being filled,
Passive gaining, essence poured-in,
A timed receipt, life's liquid gift ...

But then, is still-being enough?
By purpose? Meaning flows from doing,
Active lessening, self poured-out
In channeled cleansing, life recedes ...

Or perhaps both … being-doing,
In-formed: Taken to/o giving forth,
Re-cycled truth: Ever between ...
Substance imbibes, brilliance spills out
