IGWRT's Transforming Friday's with Hannah "Holy Water"


photobucket - Salar de Uyuni, Bolivia

Holy Water

In search of holy,
I mixed essence of rose
and moonlight,

purchased a bit
of Galilee, Fatima,
and Lourdes.

My priest salted and blessed
crystal jar of tap water,
instructed "sprinkle sparsely."

Travelled to Bolivia,
danced upon reflected calm
of Salar de Uyuni -

finally found a cleansing
of prayer, faith, 
and devotion.

How brilliantly imaginative of you to see this as a source of holy water - perfect!

I imagine if one where actually there, these are the sorts of things that would seem natural--finding holiness in the simple reality, and speaking in prayer to the sky-mirror. Lovely, Margaret.
