A Holy Place
these are I do not know...
by chance I happened on this stream
as I followed an unused path
while snow skiing to Grandma's house
in the morning one Christmas Day.
pause...listening to the silence...
how like an holy cathedral:
this river bank my high pulpit,
the reflecting waters a pool
of murky frozen deeds and thoughts,
the heavy snow laden branches,
bowed heads of a congregation
in worship before a mighty
force stronger than the mind of man.
vast, and pure transformation.
