The Way

This parade of sacrifice; such an offering.

Beauty laid out in homage.  

Beautiful feet over and over blessing the earth.

Tears watering ancient soil; each tree teaching.

The journey unimaginably long; laid out under the milky way.

Human connection as it could be; open hearts littering the Way.

Walking in the steps of Saints and Bodhisattvas, I bow down.
