The Rough Hewn Cross

The rough hewn cross
benches for the congregation
ashes of the faithful
lying at our feet

The granite pieces
part of our land
this place, home
serving as your altar

Standing at the pulpit
imaging the many parishioners
those who had come to this sanctuary
saints who have gone before
