Pilgrim Path

This blog is the work of a seeker and poet. Walking stick in hand, I head out into the world, not of the world, but in the world. My words and my friends carry me along and light the pilgrim path of spiritual journeys.

Alone in God
my soul waits, silent.
My help is from Him.
Alone in God
rest, my soul, in silence.

My hope is from Him.
He alone is my rock, my safety;
I shall not be shaken.
- Psalm 62, V2,6


Five years, perhaps a lifetime, ago,
third floor room in a building beyond
the gates with the overhead sign,
“God Alone.”

Hidden among the folds of Kentucky hills,
Gethsemani – home of Merton and my heart.
Beckons my return in silence and darkness.

Autumn chill and morning dew lingers
to bless the ground; Visions of God’s blanket
sent to comfort those who sit and watch.

Expectant eyes keep watch for geese,
their story well told by old pilgrims
fed by nature’s glory and grace.

What new wonders await this still soul?
