The place we gather

After Psalm 122

We walk the stones of the streets
of this city, the houses of rock
packed together, a closeness
compacting the hearts and emotions
and thoughts and all that we are

And those who come up for a time
walk the stones of the streets,
words of praise on their lips
as they walk to the thrones
the thrones of house,
the thrones of the house 
of David.

Within these walls,
these stones under our feet,
these rocks has aping houses
and palaces and citadels and temple,
we seek peace,
we seek security
we seek blessing
and find all three.
