taking possession

and we have purchased land
it is ours
but not yet sanctified

for that we must walk
to each corner
stand in contemplation
of our footprints in this place

touch the soil
then move on

here it is the north east
this aspect is the west
and saying this
we claim as our own
each new direction

towards the sun of morning
this is mine
it is me standing here

towards the evening
from where the darkness
I dedicate my self

I will make my monuments
and my temples
and with every change I cause
I will grow
until we are the same

no boundary line exists
between me
and my heart
