Celeste N. Snowber: Your Stones Wait

at Geghard Monastery

Your stones wait
for the faithful
to come and be
once again woed
into your womb.

starkness of ancient
stone bearing the walls
provides an empty space
for one to enter
and greet the holy.
Emptiness is the vessel
a room stripped of
all except one
opening for light
to break through.

I dance slowly-gently
in your crevices as
if a force moves my
limbs in damp air.
Knowing all along it
is the same Spirit which
has guided me all
these years, yet
a few moments birth
eternity on this ground.
