A Stone: One daily observation

Old Adobe Church Trampus NM

Sunday drive on the high road

South to Santa Fe

North to Taos

For centuries

People high in the mountains

Have shuffled along dusty roads

Bringing their prayers

To this church

Little bits of “holy belief”

Have fallen to the dirt floor

It is sacred ground

*Note:  I have returned to make some changes.  Changed “dirt” to “dusty” roads.  “Energy” to “prayers””fallen to the floor” to “fallen to the dirt floor”(as the floors of the early Spanish Churches were dirt or a mixture blood and lime)

  1. How wonderful. I love the photo and how little bits of holy belief have fallen to the floor to make it sacred ground. Just lovely, Annell. Such a mystical landscape there – heavenly to live in, I imagine.

    1. Thanks Sherry for your comments. I am enchanted. Perhaps one day you will come to see me?

      Hope today finds you well. Have the place to yourself.

      I am working on the Dress Maid Artists Book Project. Working on the Notes on the artists.

  2. I love little bit of holy belief fallen to the ground! Never would have thought of expressing it that way…but it makes perfect poetic sense! Wonderfully expressed.

  3. I too, deeply apreciate that same line. I have been in two places where I sensed that I was standing on sacred ground. It is an incredible experience.
