Sanctuary is here; hiding in plain sight Bedimmed beings step into the light Stumble upon you may; hear us you might All is welcome; no guard dogs that bite
Step inside, matters not armed or unarmed Come as you are; steady or alarmed Sip and drink from our collective fountains Rest your eyes on our self painted mountains
Come on close and meet us all Under shady trees or beyond the knoll Some of us don masks or hide behind names Some come naked but we're all one and the same
See our lives, spun from heavy layered bales Woven intricate telling fantastic tales Weavings we let fly, to catch each other's fables and stories We admire them for what they are and the seed each carries
Be aware... Should you not understand We may bear similar signatures but wear different brands We, the people, trade in euphemisms Broken sentences and long forgotten idioms
We are weavers, dreamers and scribes Pouring here the outside world we imbibe We are unguarded hearts speaking in metaphoric tongues We provide safe haven for bruised souls with punctured lungs
So welcome traveler, shed your load You might like it here in our coveted abode Revel in the monochromatic sights you see Where freedom of thought is revered in this here Sanctuary...
