Enter this holy place,
this stillness,
the sacred root
of all Creation.

Here, the soft candle
of love’s perfection
burns forever bright,
and you are home again.

Smear the oil of love
upon your brow.
Inhale the smoky scent of pine
that sanctifies the air.
Drink the liquid gold
from the crystal glass before you,
and you are now reborn.

The quiet air
begins to stir.
The wooden walls
are shaking.
Your living flesh
is transformed,
and a new life has begun.

-David Karchere
