Shadow Altars


Shadow Altars

Let me walk in your shadow
And create altars made of feathers and bones
In the sacred places wherever you rest
Because each rock you touch is utterly holy

Our ancestors’ drums are still beating
As long as these wild hearts still move
And either the world’s spinning again
Or we’re dancing together without realizing

You remind me of the ocean
And I welcome your unknowable quality
Because you mirror the great mystery
And I will not look away ever

There is nothing else to do here
But hold your head in my rough hands
As this new life is taking us places
That we never thought to dare to go
