Carpe Diem #1053 worship

Inspiration post from Chèvrefeuille:

"Welcome at a new episode of Carpe Diem Haiku Kai. This month we honor Jane Reichhold (1937-2016) a tribute to Jane month. Through modern kigo extracted from her "A Dictionary of Haiku" I hope to inspire you all to create a haiku or tanka to honor Jane Reichhold. Today our modern kigo is worship and Jane wrote a few wonderful examples of this modern kigo:"

in the beginning
all spirit - all holy
a world boat

to a beach of stones
we carry a boat of blossom
afloat of prayers

the ship
of ancestor offerings
ready to sail

© Jane Reichhold

flowing river
goose trumpets in bliss
spirits move within
