holy places everywhere

Linking to dVerse Poets pub where Amaya hosts tonight…



here can be a holy place

anywhere a sacred space

only need to be aware

heaven isn’t way up there


thinner threads within the veil

may allow a visage through

listen quiet to the pale

heart and hope again renew


gathered for a funeral or

as mist the woodland fills

in a mood ephemeral

when attentiveness distills


subtle warmth of offered tea

or soft-scented flower bud

sound of bird in linden tree

opens inner space to God

    lovely soft rhythm – you tread so lightly on this holy ground
    “in a mood ephemeral

    when attentiveness distills”

    Comforting thoughts of heaven (or any other higher place) being very close by.

    I like what you say about opening yourself to the understanding that heaven isn’t a place that is way up there… It is here and all around us.

    I like the idea that the holy place is the inner space opening to God.

    You start this piece in an easy tone with subtle thought…then wow us with “thinner threads within the veil
    may allow a visage through”

    The delicate details you’ve incorporated are truly lovely.

    The sentiment of holiness being something that we carry with us is so very strong.
