Upon the Sacred Earth

When men gather
in the strong rain of the forest
the sound of the drum echoes
with the music of the river,
the bald scree and forested slopes
sending back the message
there is room for you here
as you return in the good way
bringing the sharp truth of your tears,
the gold and the wounds of your life
and the desire to take your place
upon the sacred Earth.
