Ruined in Turkey

   across the field,
      up on the hilltop,


ruins of ancient days,
      knocked down
   by quaking earth,

      so much to see,
more to understand


we build in faith that
buildings will not fall.

things we cannot know,
      or understand.

paper lanterns
   in a stream
riding currents
      in a dream.

      we cannot know
   what's in your mind
it's just as well that way.

      across the field,
up on the hilltop,


ruins of ancient days,
      knocked down
   by quaking earth.
