The Deep Serene
Each step a journey,
I am held by the ancestors.
and I become tranquil like the feel of the granite stairs under my feet,
and serene like the waiting water soon to surround me.
This place: a dynamic still heart.
Words echo in the silent and accepting chamber
The water’s voice,
Sweet pitched waves formed by my movements
become the harmony to my prayers.
Like the kissing waters of the rain offered and the earth contained,
this private,singular ceremony is where the presence of all times converge
It holds our souls,
and our spirits become bound.
I offer my prayers
to join in time the ones already here and the new ones to come.
