She went to see the light of her family.
Her parents told her about family history.
Now it was her visiting an old tomb.
To see just how old the family is.
The tomb dates back to 1753, gives her an idea.
Knowing the history of both the area and how your family fits into it is part of wisdom.
Provides your part in how things are.
And your family’s in how they came to be.
Kneeling there I hope the ground isn’t as hard as it looks.
They spend their time together.
I don’t see any rings so not likely married.
Their place might need redecorating.
A good pressure wash would not be out-of-order.
He has flowers for her.
She doesn’t look pleased about it.
Do you think she might be allergic?
He can’t find a good razor or lost his.
That beard looks like it is chiseled from his face.
Combing their hair might be a challenge.
On a pedestal for five or six hundred years.
Gotta hope their in a rent controlled place.
Must be in the country because electric lights are not visible.
Wish them luck for the next five hundred years.
Placed in front of an inspirational place.
They are a glow of hope for all.
A spiritual guidance for people.
Stand together and be as solid as the statue.
Let the dreams of people be your inspiration.
That inspiration is the essence of your spirit.
Religious or artistic it brings beauty to all.
Those are people who inspired their carving.
Perhaps the carving will inspire people.
The stone can’t judge you.
It issues no orders on how to live your life.
No mater the conditions it stands and waits.
People leave flowers to grow as their spirit will.
Hope you have something like them near you.
The demon points and threatens.
An angel flys in to defend.
Should I help her?
She holds the powers not me.
Can anything be done except distracting him?
With a golden halo she has the strength and authority.
I’m just another hopeful person.
Does her being here say that I’m doing things right?
I hope so.
Taught as an alter boy to bow in honor.
A habit never forgotten.
Walking toward that alter for a close seat in a pew.
Parents always wanted to be up front.
The pastor could see if I was paying attention.
Another habit still unforgotten.
Only the divine will know if living up to my old habits helps.
Going to continue till the divine tells me otherwise.
First to arrive and will be last to leave.
More time to be with the divine.
The goddess greets you with open arms.
How do you greet her?
Offering her appreciation is the traditional way.
She has provided since you’ve been here last.
Food and clothing you have in plenty.
Joy and peace fill your life.
The knowledge shared will benefit the family too.
Sharing her teaching with everyone will keep you popular.
You know she will continue to provide.
Chase away or invite the person in.
It looks like you have been invited in.
She waves onward to the doors.
You have been welcomed in the temple and thus the divine presence.
Will you ask her questions?
Or will you do the worship giving honor?
The lady is who she is and provides for all.
