sacred place

sacred place

vaulting to green
the cathedral of day reaches
the ceiling of the forest
ritual birds sing to unknown rhythms
spirits rise with the sun
kiss the sky hello
these old ones know
why the day speaks of love
between the branches and the blue above
as each leaf supplicates
living for love of the sky above
naves for every dreamer
to kneel in prayer
living treasures;
live these moments
this day is only one
yet unique and unrepeatable
faithful as the seasons
fervent as the wind
growing up and out
raise cathedral eyes and hands
gaze on the sacred
fully blessed
