Centered on the Cross

Centered on the cross
The labyrinth changed
a birch cross,
placed within the rows
drawing us in,
a touchstone, a guidepost

Each stone, each step
leading to your sacrifice
adding something, reverence
setting this space
more fully apart
no longer part of the yard alone
sanctuary too
Holy ground
Centered on the cross

August 13, 2009 and August 14, 2009
Ecclesiastes 3:5
building prayer labyrinth
in our yard
