The Holy Grail

What is the Grail,

the Holy Grail?

Sought in Arthurian times

as a goblet,

as treasure,

as pure love.

The Grail is my body.

Like a studded goblet

sturdy through the years

studded with the jewels

of the acts of kindness

and compassion

and filled with love.

The Holy Grail

of each of our bodies

is filled with what?

Love is not given nor taken,

rather love is discovered and allowed.

It doesn’t matter

how much love

Creator gifts to each of us.

It only matters

how much love

we discover and accept.

It only matters

how much love

we feel worthy

to allow to fill

the Holy Grail of self.

Inspired by the THE MAYAN ORACLE book by Spilsbury and Bryner

Today is Men in the Mayan calendar. From Page. 237 of the book.

“Men asks a question of the universal quest: “What is the secret of the Grail,

and whom does it serve?" The answer reveals "The earth and I are one

---and so serve all."


  1. Wow, I've missed quite a few really significant poems in not keeping up. They are wonderful. Keep it up Lizette. They are all inspirational!

  2. Lizette, This poem of the Holy Grail is so beautiful and profound. All we really have to do is ask, Who does the Grail serve? We don't need to have the answer, the question alone reveals the mystery of the Grail. thank you for this poem.
