Within the Temple

original
 
 


within the temple
welcoming the feast of light—
three gaunt souls at dawn
 
~~ ~~ ~~
 
within the temple
bones of old saints decompose
crumbling to dust
 
~~ ~~ ~~
 
Within the temple
vile things gather to gibber
at the Holy One.

  1. Any temple depends on the sincerity and kindness of those within it I suppose..or maybe through time what it means to worship has been corrupted..you took me on a whistle stop tour from Stonehenge to St Paul’s Cathedral..thank you!

      I can’t help but wonder where an American temple tour would take us. It’s hard for me to imagine!

  2. The Hollywood walk of fame and a Mcdonald’s? (not that you have to go to the US to do the latter!)

      In my travels here and there, I have been dismayed to see McDonald’s just about everywhere!

  3. Yeah, as you point out some strange things happen within the temple. I would like to hear what goes on outside the temple. Outside the temple / Bones of old saints decompose / Crumbling to dust.

      Inside or outside, the bones decompose! 😉

  4. no one can escape the decomposing of bones

  5. Corrupt man eventually corrupts too.

  6. I was waiting for the poem to turn around and change moods, but it didn’t. I like the unexpectedness of that.

  7. Hang on! I gibber at the holy one! I’m concerned here…

  8. The vile will always gather to gibber at the Holy One. That’s how it works. I like this!
