Majesty of the Sacred

The moon grows full
shining on the bay a soft light
that speaks of woman,
the night alive
with the power
of distant stars.
Life is quickening
though chaos too often
obscures the miracle.
Stay on your spirit horse,
this ride will take us far,
healing old stories
with the grace of forgiveness
while across the land
and abroad the sea
the majesty of the sacred.

    THIS for sure…”Life is quickening
    though chaos too often
    obscures the miracle.”
    Helps to develop a long view of Life and not caught up in freeze framing the moment of chaos. Life is the way through.
