By MariJo Moore
And when the last secret of the world is known
life will begin again.
When time has crawled inside itself
and discovered it never existed,
when the river spirits blacken into
the bluing mouth of the sky
then we shall know there is,
there always has been
a sacred place where the spirits gather
to pray for us all.
