A Meditation on Standing Still

Any square foot of Earth is worth
more than all the snow-white Moon;
why, this spot on which you stand
is crowded and crammed with the memory
of seeds and stones, blood and bones, 
birth and breath, and yes, 
not a little death;
and the footprints of those who,
like you, passed this way & paused,
blessing this sacred ground.
