Inspirational People

When I went to a cathedral in France for an afternoon concert

The boys came to us from all directions

from the mountains

the sound of their young voices

pierced through the thick stone walls

the colorful stained streaks of sun

the dusty pews, the full crowd

pulled us closer

Closer to our insides

a beating heart pulled out

now, here was a place to think,

sound to guide.

In Padova, Italy at St. Anthony’s Cathedral

people pray

place their hands on the grave

leave pictures and notes of awakening

Without warning I feel connected with these people,

pulled in

elevated beyond my reach

to explain why the concentration of a church crowd praying

allows something inside of me to open.
