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.

LEAVING

Dead from the neck up,
Not so bad a place to be.
Living in my heart.

another brilliant jewel, you take us on quite a journey in such a spare poem -- haiku seems especially appropriate for Ash Wednesday!
