SHRINES

 

What is it about them,

that has us hovering, and

bugging to know more:

a weathered oaken door

of churches – beckoning

us to walk inside and get

to know a little better

what went on in earlier

times – an atmosphere of

lament and musty pews

 

Or, what occurred in former

times – the Taj Mahal of India

a splendid lavish construct of a

Maharaja’s much missed wife.

 

It is things like these that keep

my hopping mind alert, and has

me flirting with the past. Like

the aboriginals of Australia and

Ayers Rock – where once during

an ascent – I had a major heart

attack – with the Flying Doctor

plane rushing me to Alice Springs

to meditate under a respirator

 

Does spirituality extend beyond

all time zones and the stars – and,

why do wars break out because of

what one person claims to be the

proper path of enshrined thought

Philipos

Enjoyed this lovely poem in search for spirituality.

Shrines and monuments are perfect retreats from lifes mundane routines. They offer peace and tranquility needed for us to discover ourselves.

Wars?
