Pilgrimage

You can imagine a voyage in my shoes,
but yours are where you need to be.














You can dream about many quests,
but you have to accept the one you're on now.













You might think about walking my path,
but its look can be deceiving.












A little jaunt might be fun,
but loving your road is wise.










A long trek is always healthy,
but your heart is happiest when you make a home.














I wouldn't wish my journey on anyone,
but I will travel with peace as my companion,
love as my partner and hope as my guide.

Lovely Darlene,
What a wonderful post, with words of wisdom and wonderful photos.
You're right, of course, we each need to embrace the individual paths that we are walking, while supporting others in their walk.
much peace and love, deborah
