“Nature is not a place to visit. It is home.” Gary Snyder
No Temple Or Steeple What place would capture my heart, make me take off my shoes and in silence commune? No temple or steeple has ever, nor memorial, though all speak in hallowed ways. Instead I go where the air moves, where the sun and moon speak, while the bed I walk upon never sleeps, and the breeze whispers its translation through leaves of understanding. Here I rejoice in the chorale of feathered song, the trilling brook, and even granite's imposing, stony silence. It is here I take off my shoes, speak in a language of soul, feel this place deeply as Lovers are wont to do. Copyright 2023 ©️Paul Vincent Cannon All Rights Reserved ®️
