Follow the Sacred Way

Rebecca Buchanan

Follow the Sacred Way
To the shores of the great river named Kephisos;
There you will find a sanctuary of the Two Goddesses.
It is ancient and simple in form, just stone and timber.
It was built by Phylatos
Now honored as a hero for his compassion and wisdom;
For it was he who offered shelter to mourning Demeter, stained with dirt and ashes
As she searched a barren Earth for her child.
Fig trees grace the sanctuary grounds

— gift from a grateful Goddess for all humankind
