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.

Gathered in the sacred circle
sharing brutal truths with grace,
brave warriors begin their journey
as Orion guards their red clay path.

Not the easy peace of cowards,
turning tail or seeking penance
these wise souls confront their pain
living for a gentler day.

Forgiveness of ourselves is tougher
than forgiveness of our foes,
but with wisdom from the ages
we learn hard lessons well.

As we turn to face our brothers
can we see our face in theirs?
When we can, the path to peace will
never be one walked alone.
