It is the passion of man
to build a door to belief,
as if hallowed could be enshrined
and sanctify rule into sanctuary.

And although an expression,
because it is his, man attempts
to own the place and the ideas
that came to him from the free change of shadows
and from purple chance.

He needs no concrete path to the inner divine
as shadows will always linger in structure
as light is best left in thought
and not built or written down.
