Plate Friday

Surfed across to Crafty Green Poet and brought the 'Plate Friday' theme to Lunch Break
This is my most recently bought plate and now my favourite; Its a scouped glass square 24cm; with an orange printed design
before supper-
a bird lingers
on the gate

Corpus Christi

Corpus Christi translates to mean body of Christ, this is a public holiday in Trinidad and Tobago, The Thursday after Trinity Sunday; the folk culture sets this day aside as the start of the rainy season and a day for planting house crops like pigeon peas, corn, and hot peppers. The catholic religious sets this day aside to process through the streets praying and singing hyms in reverence to Jesus Christ who offered himself to his disciples at The Last Supper and commemorates the institution of the Holy Eucharist
