The green temple.

I was wandering today

amidst the busy-ness

of my life,

wondering how it is

that so many must hold

this world with a restlessness such as this

in their hearts.

And then,

quite by chance,

I found

your temple.

I wondered if perhaps I was

too full of my everyday concerns,

to intrude.

But you saw me

and with opening arms

invited me in.

Of course. Of course.

I was captivated

by the beauty of my surrounds:

the vaulted ceilings,

the domes, the arches, the pillars,

the breathtaking

tapered walls,

the white mosaic

amidst the green and delicate design.

So many times I have entered

this place,

blind to your work.

But here, here, here,

Here you are.

Always here.

If only I would look.
