Summon the Sacred

Water_witch-2by Abigael25 May 2014

Summon the Sacred

not from our words
or from priestly incantations
but from our life,
in the daily deeds and giving

Summon the Sacred.

not by desire to fit in
or to please others expectation
but led by our heart
we discover the divinity within

Summon the Sacred

not a voice that booms
from out of the heavens
but the still small voice
within, that hopes we will listen

Summon the Sacred

not from teachers
ensconced in ivory towers
but from all creatures,
the mountains, rivers and flowers

Summon the Sacred

not from learned books
or schools at the the gates of hell
but from our holy,
and natural heartfelt curiosity

Summon the sacred

not by destruction
wrought
in the name of liberty
but by love,
that flows like water, smoothly and freely.

Summon the sacred within
