Sacred Arts

How beautiful the Minbar of Saladin,
elevated by sacred geometry

 ~a stairway to heaven~

burned, rebuilt, always
reaching up from the battered ground.

  6. beautiful, I wish I could see it in real life! I watched a video on its history and rebuilding, A very suitable subject for poetry. The last line of your poem is transcendent! Than you for sharing
