Mountaintop Meditation

It’s like being on the sacred mountaintop –
outside my window untouched snow windswept silent
cloudless horizon clear still water mountain reflection
white paper before the pen or brush –
on the postcard rising above my desk.

 

Mt. Kailash

Mount Kailash (also Kailasa; Kangrinboqê or Gang Rinpoche) is a high peak in Tibet and is considered to be sacred in four religions: Hinduism, Bon, Buddhism, and Jainism.

Virgin Births

On this longest night, gods and goddesses
met to plan our Fates. Virgin mothers
gave birth to their sacred sons today.
Rhiannon’s Pryder. Isis’ Horus. Demeter’s Persephone. Perhaps,
Mary’s Jesus under a comet or conjunction.
