KEDARNATH

Kedarnath Temple at Uttarakhand



I have come to you in this darkest hour of winter
I hope you can see me
The ice within me is much like the ice that surrounds me
I hope you can heal me

You hold all the venom of this world inside so mankind may survive
I hope you can teach me
How to be a vessel for such corrosive knowledge
And still believe

Up this steep mountain I have dragged 

This debris of thoughts
And feelings and memories
To make a bonfire at your feet
