Sacred Ground

Sacred Ground

Gardens hidden in secret places
Watched over by a gibbous moon
Solar lanterns glow to life
As nature dances and swoons
Who am I an eye trying to understand
Harmony that has existed through time
Chaos its partner in every dance
Light and dark balance as evening fades
Into dark night which births day light
Creator and creation one and the same
Though we divide life into  names
In our limited imaginations
Universal being knows itself
Has no need for our paltry labels
Recognition or adoration, existent only
Our weak vision rarely compasses all
Make up theories, gods and religions
To be safe from the outer darkness within
Worship better the sun, water, air
No more deities than those we create
But true bringers of life, seeds of time
From first darkness and first light
Nebulae in deep space birth galaxies
Suns and their companions, collisions
Creation, stars birthing the elements
Bringing fire, air, earth, water
Self-reflexive beings such as us
All the seeds which grow into time
Until time has lived its full duration
Earned its rest and returned
To the ground of being
