to a god unknown

i found this cross on the beach today. someone had clearly put some effort into making it, lashing the two pieces together with twine, and whittling the bottom of it so that it could be stuck into the earth. i think the ocean unleashed it, who knows where from, and washed it up to greet me amidst an awe-inspiring storm. something to make the gods stop and think...
i climbed up on a cliff, found a spot for the cross, overlooking the ocean, hoping that this new view will be worthy of whomever it was intended for. blessings to all who live and die here, this powerful place we call home.
