THE CROSS #2

Here at the foot of the cross
we stand in awe
before the wonder of the
mystery of the place itself
standing where we stand
between Heaven and Hell.
Christian Tradition
and Mythology
has this as the center
of the Christian Cosmos
the heart of the Christian World,
the place of our definition.
For here Adam was made into flesh,
here Adam died
and here Adam was redeemed!
And in this Sacred Mystery,
in this place,
in this sequence,
the Tree of Life,
the Cosmic Tree,
the Tree of our Salvation,
grows, flourishes,
heals, liberates,
and saves.
Here at the foot of the Cross.
