Humble Thyself

stepping into the sanctuary
rows of empty pews
light glinting ahead
the cross my ultimate goal
but as I rush
I stumble
down on four limbs
gathering myself I rise
one step .. another
and my legs give
on my knees in the center
I realize
   cool tile below
   warm light above
   north south east west
   faces of witness
this is the place
this is the moment
