Acknowledgement

Inside this hallowed cathedral
created of your adobe,
I do not genuflect,
you would merely laugh
at my feeble stab at reverence,
laugh at my off-balance bow
to all you have wrought.

A votive, I light,
adding my small flicker
to the red glow of others,
so many others
have held on
tightly to the comfort of
your hands.

I pray that I will practice
lessons you have taught,
pray I won’t need reminders
to put aside selfishness
and embrace the needs
of others.

I cling to the light,
the only light,
cast in your reflection,
outwardly, I may scoff
but you and I know
I believe.
