Sacred Ground

Sacred Ground

Chrystal Hogan

In the presence of this fire
We hear the voice of our God,
Of our Goddess, of our Holy.
“You are on Sacred Ground.”

In the presence of the flame
In me, in you, in us,
Moving, resting, gathering
We are on sacred ground.

In the presence of this fire
We are compelled
To take up a torch, to carry a flame,
To seek a sacred ground.

In the presence of this spark
We are committed
To light the fire of passion, of life, of holy work.
To journey towards truth on Sacred Ground.
