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.

On this morning of a day with great potential,
these are the gifts God has given us.

Hearing the throaty, croaky "good morning" of your love

before they turn to hide their dark night's breath.
Sharing silence in a spring time bed
as the first whiffs of lilac tickle our winter noses.

Seeing the unopened yellow buds of dandelions
in a child’s pre-breakfast bouquet.
Feeling the warmth of the stretched-out belly
of your well-loved pet up against your side.
Finding love in the whispered words
of a prayer repeated to a hoped-for God

On this morning of a day with great potential,
God dares us to stay in bed.
