Treasure Island

The Nature of Man's Spirituality


I walked today
0n a well worn path
Dusty grey red rusty brown from
Ages ago
When giants walked the earth
Ages ago
When great sea burrowing cetaceans
Sought safety in deep grey ooze and mud
I walked on their legacies
Their carcasses
Their bones

It was a spiritual place: Sedona
A vortex or so they say
A place that draws essence
A place that renews vigor
Where people give voice and life
To the faces and figures carved by Nature
In a labyrinth of towering vistas

Humans assign life where there is none
Then choose to ignore life when it is within our gaze.

That seems to be the nature of our spirituality.

Poem of the Day

poet Paul Laurence Dunbar

The mist has left the greening plain,
The dew-drops shine like fairy rain,
The coquette rose awakes again
Her lovely self adorning.

The Wind is hiding in the trees,
