Thank you God for this strawberry, 
n055hHSthe last fresh one of the season,
almost too ripe to pick and eat.

Thank you God for this strawberry,
not too ripe after all, plucked carefully
to avoid crushing, eaten still kneeling.

Thank you God for this strawberry,
which is not a metaphor for anything
but is just itself – a warm and juicy and sweet
reminder of You, Grace-filled Abundant Creator.

Amen.
