Poetry / “Hallowed ground”


Hallowed ground


To much of the world hallowed ground

is a grotto under a church in Oh Little Town


To others it’s a sacred monolith in Mecca

or along the banks of the river Ganges


Some feel it’s the killing fields of Gettysburg

or where their hearts are buried South Dakota


And others find hallowed two holes in Manhattan

one in Pennsylvania and one in a five-sided wall


But to me it’s much easier than these because

my holy land begins with a table and two chairs and

an initial kiss hello outside of a coffee shop

on a warm November morning

My eBooks of poetry and romance are available at Etsy – please visit my page:
