Lake Louise

(Inspired by the awesome beauty of
Lake Louise in the Canadian Rockies.

Shh! Take
off your shoes
and reverence the place.
Shed your too tight skin
and ride the winds that swell
the breast and waken the spirit.
Let your eyes sip and suck,
sate the desire sifting ever the dross
in search of gold. Stake your claim
alongside these others, then dare
go forth alone with courage
to share the fire reignited
deep within your soul.
