I love a good steeple.
Especially an ornate one like this,
piercing the cloudy sky
in search of light.

After photographing it,
I stumbled upon this prayer
and knew I must share
the two together.

Prayer for Guidance

The spirits of the mountain
exist in strength.
Their roots are deep
in the Earth,
their heads pierce the air
and mount to the sky above.
They dance from flat to peakand,
spiraling, descend again.

Good Ones,
when I come under your trees
and upon your stones,
guide me.
