I awoke with a dream
knowing how Stonehenge was raised
how the monoliths were moved
into sacred formation

I saw us in the dream
each a heavy weight
of grief or stories or pain
a monolith of life

then we are raising each other up
lifting each other as witness
carrying each other’s pain
honoring each other’s story

and in the dream
the monolith of each
became like a feather
with the love of the others

and we were each held up
in formations of circles
in the light of dawn
like Stonehenge

I awoke on a holy night morning
knowing love can lift the stones
community can hold the circle
and bring the new dawn
