Re-faithing is timeless

The pleading of frailty
beseeching for succor
affirmation of faith
the timeless spectacle 
of human need and incapacity
re-enacts in annual ritual
in pilgrimage and chant
the raising of arms
the clasping of hands
clutching at amulet 
in all the Kachchativus 
where men and women 
have turned soil into sanctity 
created the divining 
in their image-elevation 
crafted with the humility 
of timeless infirmities
and mistaken divinities
taken nevertheless 
from dust to church 
to devotion 
and re-reaffirmation
as one pathway to peace
as good as any other.
