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.

Footpaths strewn with autumn’s
multi-colored veil of leaves
draw our eyes downward to fallen
acorns and fuzzy caterpillars.

The frantic pace of summer
yields to autumn’s slower gait as
in vain we try to stave off winter’s
chill with our leisurely creation walk.

I, too, am in my autumn years
and as restless as the blowing leaves
I bravely strive to compete with nature
before I’m covered in a blanket of snow.
