A Stone: One daily observation
Old Adobe Church Trampus NM
Sunday drive on the high road
South to Santa Fe
North to Taos
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)

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.
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.

“little bits of holy belief” …years faithfully placed into the walls, floor and icons of this building…very nice…bkm
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.
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.
Lovely. Yes, that last bit is perfect. Thank you.
