Boots on the Stair

(Or "Dr. Seuss Meets the Goddess" )
by Bodhi Paul Chefurka

I walk through the door, sit down on the stair,
Take off my boots and place them with care
Next to the wall; but I leave a small space,
If the heavens drop by they might fill it with grace.

I stare at that space with a smile in my eyes,
Take a long breath, and drop down inside
To the place of deep silence where a cool river flows,
Where wind whispers softly and greener grass grows;
Where the Goddess smiles at me and tells me She knows
How I feel.

Love takes me apart
And puts me back whole
It empties my mind
As it fills up my soul
With sorrow and joy
Stirred up in a swirl,
The human elixir we drink in the world.

I open my eyes and see that the space
By my boots next the wall is flowing with grace.
And it's just the right size for your shoes.
