The Table is Set

This picture was the prompt in an earlier Story Sessions write in.  The question to go along with it was "What is inviting you?"  The poem below is what I wrote while contemplating the picture.

The table is set with
 a pure white cloth.
A vase of flowers 
will set the tone.
But I am all alone.

Utensils are rolled 
in napkins of white.
Hidden is the feast
Prepared for all from
greatest to the least.

Where is everyone?
What do they expect?
Everything is here
to set the tone.
But I am still alone.

I will just go out
invite all I find.
They will get the food.
They set the tone.
And I am not alone.
