Your body is a temple.
Of all the gods who laid down their swords in service of your soul.
Your cells, your tissues, your blood and your bones.
Your sweat and your tears.
Your sufferings and your joys.
A vast landscape of light and darkness
Entering both heaven and the abyss
In search of the one home where many have lived
Inside of you.
This temple has served in all its years it was meant to
be earthed as a body which has more to teach you.
Its edges roughed by incarnations, living and dying.
Its words scattered through your breath
Of stories told and untold.
Prophecies seen and unseen.
Waiting to be honored
A body which many of us would rather forget.
