I give reverence

I  give reverence to this Majestic Monument
 as I pass by Often, 
softened  by the glow
 that exudes from the Road 
Before Me, 
as the SacredCedars  Smile
 penetrates my Sheath 
and makes me breathe 
as I embrace the  Wide Sky
 for awhile, 
nurturing SoulSeeds planted 
by the Mountain and  Forest 
and steeped in deeds that nourish
 the Great We
the Torus
