How the sun must rise
red stone step
places to pray between rock and shadow
holy in our movement
we hear the faint sound
shut our eyes and keep our mind open
to boys who come from all directions
by the sound of their young voices
from the mountains they had come to sing
their oval mouths blossoming like spring.
What is at stake
taking in where you live or
living where it takes you as
opens your mind,
and touching nature.
