A bench by the path.
Ten years, I’ve been walking.
I will rest here.
Inspired by and written with thanks to Brenda Yun, at Pilgrims’ Poems, who’s just published one of my poems from earlier this year. She’s building a great site, which is well worth a look.
I’m not religious, but I respect the wisdom, discipline and power of all the great religions. Pilgrimage is an almost forgotten tradition in many of our cultures which is perhaps worth reviving.
