The Healing Place

They shed their disease

as they enter the room

they fall to their knees

leave their blood on the floor

they taste of His flesh

as He offers forgiveness

tears from the masses

cleanse their wounds and their sores.

Miracles abundant cannot be refuted

crutches unused left next to the door

the spirit of healing permeates the zephyr

thousands of testimonies whisper from the walls.

The dirt many say

is the harbor of miracles

for the pilgrims of faith

who journey each year

the Santuario de Chimayo

hears the cry of the people

offers hope, rest and healing

to all who come near.
