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.

“I was stolen by You from the grave.” – Aaron Strumpel
“Freedom is coming, oh yes, I know.”
– South African church song

Shuttered windows,
tightly latched doors
cannot prevent dark clouds
from entering
my room
my silence and prayers.

Never alone, I seek
my angel-whisperer
to bring my plea
to heaven’s ears,
“Yahweh, lift this shadowed yoke.”

Sharply, an explosive laugh
starting in my belly spews
forth through my lips
with a dangerous language
to remind me,
cowards sleep an easy peace.
