Magic Mounds~by Paul Lenzi



Magic Mounds


Mississippian Culture Mounds in Central USA

earthen faith
raised up misty terrains
from dirt and devotion
to ritual passage
between moon and sun
mystic sky set as altarpiece
tumulus tied by the chieftain
and priest to a
tribal cosmology
common to living and dead
heights reaching
to temple and tomb
leaving nothing to trace
of their hearts or their minds
all we have are the
weathered down shapes
of the mysteries
formed by their hands



From my book Small Noise
