Tao Te Ching #36, Holy Ground

We are standing on Holy Ground.
Sometimes.

At other times, the earth falls away:
beams fall, mountains burn,
and water levels all that remains.

Yet, it begins anew
and green sprouts appear, then trees
and fruits and then-
against all odds-
fish begin to walk.

One day, eons later, Holy Ground
will be proclaimed,
sung about,
and stood upon
again.
