I am a pilgrim on a circuitous path.
With every ring I round, Love wraps me tighter.
Leading me to re-visit spaces I visited before.
To hear at once His ever-faithful beckoning.
To see anew through ancient windows.
To taste afresh the olden songs.
Brown yet un-burnt beneath a forgiving sun – I move.
Hauling questions of love and pain.
Chasing Hope while myself pursued.
Bearing gifts of praise and intention.
Taking turns to sip at Light’s fount – I rest.
Then rise with eagerness reformed.
Beginning at the end of my beginning.
Pushing past forests of doubt into fields of Glory.
To hear at once – again
To see anew – again
To taste afresh – again
For I am a pilgrim….
