holy places revisited

We’ve celebrated Easter…Pentecost is coming! 

 

burning bush in desert place

holy ground tread with bare feet

temple built as sacred space

where heaven and earth did meet

 

virgin’s womb a holy space

where divine entered our world

fishing boat or grassy place;

when Jesus spoke, truth unfurled

 

upon the cross where he stayed

hanging between sacred space

in the garden where he laid

death couldn’t silence holy grace

 

holiness we now receive

spirit fire from heaven’s hand

wholly people who believe

God’s house gathers from all lands

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

prayer for open heart surgery

 

Lord,

make us holy,

whole.

where we are broken,

fixed.

where we are bound,

free.

where we are empty,

filled.

where we are lost,

found.

 

open our hearts,

repair the holes

make us holy

wholly yours.

 

Amen –  may it be so.
