Entering hallowed thresholds
Aromas escaping incense burners
oil lamps buoy inner spirit

Phalanxes of small lit flames
In votives release a fervent pillar

of light, pleas, prayers replete

Sight of soaring “godly” ceilings
Lofty depicted stained glass windows
With warm glowing freshly polished

Ebony and mahogany pews beckon
Invitingly to lay down life’s burdens
Restfully salve bruised bodies soul
