Apostles’ Creed: First Article

Ms. Spainhour, first grade,
Bolton Elementary,
she wore lots of shiny rings
she’d say Hey kids
circle up on the floor
and then hold out a wooden globe—
The memory is too ancient
for me to know the lessons
or even her voice
But I do know when I sing
“He’s Got the Whole World In His Hands”
I see dark smooth coffee colored hands
cradling this creation,
the clicking and clicking
of bejeweled fingers
holding us all in the air
and this is most certainly
true.
