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.

SIMPLE BLESSINGS

I choose to stay beneath the cottonwoods
whose tall strong arms inspire me to sit
upright on the ground, to close my eyes and
let the wind wash over me for a while.

And when I sit, the clear vision comes of
soft green fields whose blades of grass will comfort
me as I lie down, I’ll hear the sounds of
sacred songs sung in rhythm with my heart.

The animals of this land now gather
sharing nature’s joy through simple presence
with this humble servant; tomorrow we’ll
return, a blessing to one another.

Be still, sit upright, and know. Very pastoral.

Say, is that O'Keefe's mountain in the background?
