Sacred Circles – A Poem

Sacred Circles

When the elders die
all they touched becomes sacred.
Circle round their spirit.
Amen!
Amen we say,
a long rich life was lived.

When the elders die
abandoned
poor
unable to afford
the least that would ascertain life,
Amen we say.
Amen we blindly say
a long rich life was lived.

Until it is
when the elders lived
round the circle spirit
dance with them.
Amen.
