Cup Of Crystal - Poem by Carol Fleming Klein

Let me be the cup
Of clear shining crystal
Full and running over
With Your goodness
And Your love

Plunge me deeply
Into the ceaseless fountain
Of “living water”
‘till I’m brimming
And drops flow
Down the side
And absorb into thirsty ground.

Quench the thirst
Of the woman coming to the well
With my contents
Upturn and empty me
Then fill me up again
For the others who will seek
The scores of other wanderers
Who will discover the well
And ask You for a drink.

Poet's Notes about The Poem

My parents had just moved to Southern California. My father and I had arrived in a Ryder moving truck just two weeks prior to the writing of this poem. There may have been some outer stimulus from the youth group or a sermon, but I was feeling some kind of a pull in my spirit toward spiritual action and ministry of some type. I wasn't sure quite what it should look like.
