Here is a poem of mine about finding the Temple;


HOW TO FIND THE TEMPLE


Begin far away.

Make stops as you approach.

Stand still … inhale the scent of the air.

Listen for messages.

Get closer.

Touch something unusual.

Note how the light falls.

Let your tears fall.

Send a prayer out on the wind.

Ask for what you want.

Kneel. Touch the ground.

See something very close up.

Look at the horizon.

Feel yourself between the two.

Set it all to music.

Say “Amen”.


Enjoy your week!
