What sacred shrines

Imagine the explorers
who fought their way
through brush and vine;
through snakes and swamps,
impenetrable jungles,
only to find,
at the heart of the journey
that someone had been there
before them
and had erected a sumptuous temple
in order to give thanks
to whatever gods
had brought them safely
to this holy place:
what sacred shrines will be revealed
when you stay with your pilgrimage?
