The Temple

If my body is a temple
then I think 
you should come inside
and worship.

But please, 
remove your shoes first,
leave them
in the outer courtyard
before you carefully
and with permission
cross into 'Temenos,'
the sacred space
of all temples,
beyond that invisible boundary
between you and me.

Leave your weapons
and defenses
outside the door.
You will not need them
here.

But bring, if you will,
all the courage you can possibly
muster
all the dragon-slaying power
you possess
all the spirit-warrior wisdom
you claim as your own
and especially bring 
all the stamina
you have ever needed to call upon
because you will
most definitely
need it.
