WordPress – #Daily Prompt – Ceremony

The Way of the Gods is one of great ritual

Processes of discipline that become habitual

The nature of kami is that of complex divinity

One that blends the spirit of  balanced ceremony

With the worship of ancestors with dexterity

Into the bold but humble patterns of familiarity

The ultimate ancestors spring from heaven and earth

Mixing the tears of heaven with the laughter of mirth

There in the shrine is the place of the first seat

Where all generations come together and meet

Ashes are gathered in a return to their sacred source

Death leading to life leading back to death of course

With a washing of hands a people seek their purity

And in it their love of land, ancestors and heaven’s security
