Notices 8 The Shrine


Gods become - etched from the pale sandstone
A formal walk of Deities in procession
A wheaten cone - a supplication - is considered
Accepted - the offered bread - confirms this presence

See my bestowed silence in this timely cloak
See me revealed - as your beliefs revelation
Questioned - understood - the articulate - The 'I was'
My unfathomed - 'Am' - in this perpetual frame

Poem of the Day

poet Edgar Allan Poe

Kind solace in a dying hour!
Such, father, is not (now) my theme-
I will not madly deem that power
Of Earth may shrive me of the sin
